I am packing my stuff up for long term storage due to my transfer. I decided to take a few moments to take some photos of the Luftwaffe tunic collection. I hope that you like the photos.

Justice Official. This tunic is in rough shape. There are MANY repairs and signs of wear. Possibly worn as a POW. The Eagle was removed. The current eagle and ribbon bar pictured was placed on for the photo(provisions were there for a three spaced ribbon bar).

Musikmeister uniform, with trousers. Unfortunately not named. I think that the owner could be narrowed down as there were not too many of these guys... and the tunic was tailored in Gent Belguim.

Paul,

Nice uniforms. It is possible for you to make a close up of the ribbon bar from your first post please. Seems to be an Austrian ribbon bar. Like I'm not a TR specialist, can you tell me which rank it is ? I think to Leutnant but not sure !

I need to learn from TR

Regards

Christophe

Thanks Christophe!

Here is the ribbon bar you were talking of. The tunic has provisions for a very long ribbon bar. The Austrian bar fits perfectly. I even used the KVK2 ribbon for the buttonhole for the photo(it came originally with the bar). Most officials, like this Air Traffic Controlman, were older WW1 veterans. The rank title for this tunic is Meister(same grade as a Leutnant).

Congratulations Paul! What a Splendid & Diverse LUFT Collection!

You have Collected carefully and well - and the Condition is Primo!

Hopefully, your Transfer will be to a WARM Location, for a Change!

Best.... Dave/dblmed

Thank you all for the kind replies. I love the Obscure side of the Luftwaffe. Fortunately, the more non streamline stuff is not popular and does not cost much!

Dave,

I am transferring to CA... a bit too warm, if you ask me. I am not a West Coast person, but I am excited about the cutter I am being assigned to.

The first music meister tunic I have seen. I love the off the beaten path stuff myself. More so for the variety of colors insignia. Thanks for the show.
