Luftwaffe Flight Officer's Four-Pocket Tunic Grouping

Description

Very nice high quality, privately purchased blue/grey wool construction 1935 pattern Luftwaffe four-pocket tunic (Waffenrock) with matching trousers and officer's greatcoat. The tunic features a vertical, four button, front closure. The right breast has a very nice quality early drooptail type breast-eagle neatly hand-stitched to the tunic. A pair of yellow-coloured collar tabs, both showing four aluminum rank gulls, is nicely hand-sewn to the collar. The collar tabs make a perfect match with the shoulder boards. The tunic is having shoulder-boards of the sew-in type having the yellow 'Waffenfarbe' indicating an 'Oberfeldwebel' within a Flight (Flieger) unit. The interior of the tunic is lined in grey rayon, the tunic is not visible maker marked or named. The tunic comes with internal dagger hangers. The tunic is in very good condition, there are only minor traces of usage, see photos. The tunic comes together with its matching wool trousers made of the same wool. The greatcoat is an officer's type Luftwaffe greatcoat complete with shoulder-boards and collar tabs as intended for a 'Leutnant der Flieger'. The greatcoat is in very good probably unissued condition. The set comes together with a portrait-photo and some documents, named to Pilot 'Wolfang Kliemke' who died in a plane crash on 8 April 1945 near Henningsleben. Unfortunately the tunic and greatcoat are not named. The set was however found together a few years ago in Germany. Interesting original grouping!
