Hi Charles,

 

that is an M15 Bluse. The field grey Waffenrock for Flügeladjutanten did not necessarily have breast pockets; in fact as per regulations did not have them.

Glenn

Sorry if I was unclear. Yes, the m16 tunic is correct. I was wondering about the 1910 tunic. Castell has no breast pockets but Leonrod doesE177A69E-80D2-4FB7-B37D-3FCE6230988D.thumb.jpeg.6c56f5123bb1e6f9135b166dc2c01d88.jpeg29C05F9B-9231-42AB-9CAC-D02E01172197.thumb.jpeg.1a2b21207cda33eb85351345cd1d7c09.jpeg29C05F9B-9231-42AB-9CAC-D02E01172197.thumb.jpeg.1a2b21207cda33eb85351345cd1d7c09.jpeg

Charles,

maybe I was unclear; per regulations the 1910 tunic for Flügeladjutants should NOT have breast pockets. However, I should not imagine anyone lost any sleep about such a transgression!

Charles,

In response to your various e-mails and posts, as Glenn pointed out, the M 1910 for Flügeladjutanten did not have breast pockets - see enclosed scans, particularly plate 9, and the further pic from the tunic showing a detail not evident from the ones on Helmut's site.

Castell-Castell probably (and correctly) continued wearing this tunic also after his 1918 promotion to general rank. which as Glenn notes, did not come with a promotion to Generaladjutant. 

I once owned this piece and never felt uncomfortable with it.

Hi Sandro,

that’s excellent literature for the adjutant tunic. I have no doubt about the tunic, I’m just asking about the differences between it and the Leonrod. Are the tabs on Castell of the 1915 pattern?

 

I never realized those Saxon tabs were exclusively for Saxon Generaladjutant
