Luftwaffe 'Fallschirmjäger' NCO's Flight Blouse

Description

Luftwaffe Flight NCO's Flight Blouse (Fliegerbluse) as intended for an 'Unteroffizier der Fallschirmjäger'. The Luftwaffe flight blouse was originally introduced in early 1935 and was based on the Fliegerbluse worn earlier by the DLV (Deutscher Luftsport Verband). The flight blouse remained in service through-out the war with minor modifications. The blue/grey wool construction flight blouse features a vertical French fly style, front closure with four buttons on the right front panel and the corresponding, hidden button holes on the left front panel. The blouse has a single metal hook and eye at the neck for a secure closure. A machine embroidered Luftwaffe breast-eagle is nicely machine-sewn to the tunic. A pair of yellow-coloured collar tabs, both having one rank gull applied, is nicely machine sewn to the collar. Silver NCO braid is machine-sewn around the collar. Shoulder-board loops and buttons are present. The tunic comes together with a nice pair of shoulder-straps as intended for an 'Unteroffizier'. The insignia are having the golden-yellow 'Waffenfarbe' indicating an Unteroffizier within a 'Flieger' or 'Fallschirmjäger' (paratrooper) unit. A cloth paratrooper badge is nicely hand-sewn to the breast. The interior of the flight blouse is partially lined in grey rayon. The markings are faded and hard to read. The tunic is in overall good used condition showing only minimal traces of usage and some minor damages/repairs, mainly to the reverse and sleeve, see photos. Nice original Paratrooper flight blouse in good used condition!
