Luftwaffe Flight/FJ EM's Flight Blouse

Description

Luftwaffe Flight/FJ EM's Flight Blouse (Fliegerbluse) as intended for a 'Soldat der Flieger/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 metal dish type 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. The flight blouse is having an original factory machine-sewn standard pattern machine- embroidered Luftwaffe breast-eagle. A pair of yellow-coloured collar tabs, both having one rank gull applied, are hand sewn to the collar. Shoulder-board loops and buttons are present. The tunic comes together with a nice pair of Enlisted Men's shoulder-straps. The insignia are having the golden-yellow 'Waffenfarbe' indicating a soldier within a 'Flieger' or 'Fallschirmjäger' (paratrooper) unit. The interior of the flight blouse is partially lined in cotton and rayon using mixed materials, the small loop in the collar is made of original sumpftarn camouflage fabric. There are size markings visible (chest size 96cms) and the tunic is nicely RB.Nr.0/0456/0070 marked. The tunic is in very good condition showing minimal traces of usage and one small damage to the lining material. Stunning original late war flight blouse made of mixed materials!
