Super rare Luftwaffe Admin NCO Manikin Setup

Recommended Posts

As I get time, I have been pulling out my collection to take some decent photos of the uniforms kitted out on a manikin. I hope that you like this very uncommon example. It is only the second Admin NCO tuchrock I have ever seen. It took me years to find this one and it is a beauty! If you know of any others, please do post them.

I personally find the Admin NCO insignia to be very attractive.

Very nice Paul. :)

Do you know what administrative branch the colour of the tabs denotes.

I have a few LW admin portraits but it is next to impossible to know what branch they served in when looking at B&W photos.

The collar tabs are dark green, which represents the Luftwaffe General Administration Corps.  The specialty is designated in the middle layer of the shoulder boards.  In this case, they are Rose Pink.  The possible specialties are:


Rose Pink- Photo Service, Motor Transport Service, Ordnance Service, Weapons and Ammunition Service, Technical Aircraft Service, Cartographic Service, Lithographic Service


Thank you all for the kind words.  The dog is my wife's service animal.  She is a good girl.

Thanks Chris.




The belt is and etc are in storage.  I will definitely make images once I get my war room back up and running.  It is a dress belt made with a felt backing.  Super lightweight.  It is a prewar example, I think.
