New High Ranking Communications Specialist tunic

Recommended Posts

Just in today!! :jumping:

A field grade ranking tunic for a Luftwaffe Signals Official! This is the first such tunic I have ever seen.

This particular tunic is a private purchase piece(as are all of the Officer Level Officials tunics I have ever handled). The upper pocket flaps are sewn down at the corners.

From everything that I have read, these men worked in Research and Development for "state of the art" transmission equipment, as well as other very specialized roles. Some examples could be developing, perfecting, and operation of navigation systems on remote controlled weapons, radar, codes, and etc.

If anyone has any thing to add, I would be most appreciative!! :jumping: I look forward to reading your comments.

Thanks for the reply, John. The top photo most accurately captures the nebenfarbe. It is most definitely golden brown, the second signals waffenfarbe. The man who originally wore this jacket must have been very small in stature. I doubt he was much taller than five feet, if even that!.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
