Hello,

Great thread on collar tabs. I've got a nice reference site on general officer and field marshal insignia with some examples shown at; www.themarshalsbaton.com

I'm looking for pictures of a few ranks that I'm missing, if any Luft collectors out there have examples to share.

Thanks for the info Adam. We are trying to figure out the manufactoring process for these tabs. Please do not damage your tabs!!

Paul,

Thanks so much for your welcome to this forum and your emails. This looks to be a wonderful new place to share information, thoughts and friendships. Much more gentlemanly than the other forums seem to have devolved into.

I hope to be a regular contributor (and knowledge sponge) on here!

Mike

You are right... i have not seen such sharp images!

Here are a few new tabs that I have added to my collection. The first is a nice set of Flight pipped ObLt, still bound together.

Hmmmm, Paul has been quietly adding to his collection! Good job.

Why do you state that the flak tabs are late war? because they dont use buckram??

I like the Field div tabs. I have seen the same kind of tabs with a blue waffenfarbe but was told by GP that they were unidentified NSFK.

Hi Gary,

Thank you for reply!

It was explained to me that the use of cardboard and other stiffner material was a practice used in the latter half of the war. It would make sense!

As far as the FD tabs, I found a set just like them in Vol 2 of Angolia's, "Uniforms and Traditions of the Luftwaffe". Page 255. The only difference is that the tabs are waffenfarbed for the HG division. Other than the waffenfarbe, the construction, gulls, and piping are identical. What are your thoughts?

Regards

Paul

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
