WW II German Army Air Force Leuchtpistolentaschen – SIGNAL FLARE HOLSTER – RARE!


Out of stock


You are bidding on a VERY NICE used example of a WW2 German Wehrmacht / Luftwaffe Leuchtpistolentaschenonen(Signal Flare Holster), as used throughout the war!

The signal flares in most Luftwaffe aircraft were either located in the cockpit or in the pilot’s personal equipment.  The pilot and crew would use them as a means of communicating with other pilots while in flight, or to be used in emergency situations when on the ground.

The German army utilized two basic models of flare pistols, with one having a short barrel and the other a long barrel, that were introduced in 1928 and saw service right up until the end of the WWII. Both of the basic flare pistols were issued with a specific holster and were capable of firing over forty assorted flares with different functions and purposes.



Made of leather and steel, this Signal Flare Holster is in EXCELLENT used condition.  Some slight wear, scratches, and marks due to the age, but nothing that detracts.  Manufacture markings indicate, “fug 1942”, with a prominent waffenamt.  Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!

Please email me if you need additional photos or information.
