You are bidding on a VERY NICE used example of WW2 German Luftwaffe Tropenhemd (Tropical Long Sleeve Shirt), as used earlier in the war!
The Luftwaffe tropical shirt was introduced in late 1940 (along with other tropical clothing and equipment) for personnel serving in North Africa. The design of the shirt was based on the standard long sleeve shirt but in a different color and material. Issues in both a long sleeve and short sleeve design, there were originally the pullover style with four buttons, but later, were altered to the full button up front.s.
Manufactured in a tan cotton/rayon, this RARE Tropical Shirt is in SUPERB used condition! Heavily sun-bleached from the hot tropical sun, it does show various signs of wear, along with stains and marks throughout. No rips of tears, and still retains all the original medal loops! Loops attached are for the Breast Eagle, and others awards. All buttons are present and functional. Reatins the loops for shoulder boards. DEFINITELY combat worn, it is EASILY the nicest I have owned of this type, in overall SUPERB used condition. Would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection or display!
