Luftwaffe Tunic stamps


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I would like to start a running database of issued LW tunic stampings. Bear in mind that this data will only be available on depot/issued pieces. Privately tailored pieces will not have these stamps.

I am looking for the following data as is it stamped on liners of the Continental Blue/Gray tunics:

1. Type of tunic(Fleigerbluse, Tuchrock, or Waffenrock)

2. Piping(Flight, Flak, Admin, or etc)

3. L.B.A. Code and number

4. Depot markings

5. Unit designators

6. Other stamps or marks not covered above(excluding the sizing grid)

7. Named?

Maybe we can find some patterns of distribution. Who knows what other data may emerge!!

1. Tuchrock

2. Flak Uffz

3. L.B.A.(S) 38 and L.B.A. (S) 35

4. No Depot Mark

5. 2.I.Fl.Reg 49(on name tag)

6. None

7. "Kanonier Maier Helmut"

For some reason, there are two LBA Stamps on this tunic. Does this indicate a reissue? Strange with two pre war dates?

Now I was informed that the (S) represented the city of Stuttgart.

The tally thus far(will be organized by LBA code):

Stuttgard(?)

LBA(S) 35

1 Tuchrock (has an additional stamp for LBA(S) 38)

LBA(S) 38

2 Tuchrocks (with one coming from a depot in Aibling. Where was the 2.I.Fl.Reg 49 in 1938?)

Berlin(?)

LBA 38

1 Tuchrock (From Villhelm Holl(?) Berlin 9 38. Where was the III Fl. I Rgt 13. 13 Battln. in late 1938?)

(Unknown)

LBA 3 42

1 EM Fliegerbluse, 2nd pattern (converted to Officer).

Now...

LBA(S)= Stuttgard

LBA= Berlin

LBA 3= ?

Please add yours! Any help or additions are welcome!

Regards

Paul

I've a era book about clothing rules etc. and it says this :

LBA(S)= Sonneberg ( not Stuttgart ! )

LBA(B)= Berlin

LBA(BF) = BieleFeld

The LBA 3 isn't mentioned, might be added in a later stadium..

LBA 3= ?

Hi Paul,

I personally don't know of any others sofar..

LBA means -Luftwaffe Bekleidungs Amt- , a kind of large depot..

Jos.

There are some stamps that are plain "LBA" and without a suffix, such as the (s). Where are those from? Sorry if I am confusing.
