You are bidding on a FANTASTIC and EXTREMELY RARE and UNISSUED example of a WW2 German Luftwaffe EM/NCO Feldbluse Combat Field Tunic! This was used by Field Division Units.
The first HBT, (Herring Bone Twill) uniforms introduced in April 1936 for use by Luftwaffe EM/NCO personnel. These were favored by the troops and began to be worn in the field as a summer uniform.
On September 27, 1943 the original issued color of blue/grey were replaced with a reed green coloring. This was done as a time/cost saving measure by having a standard color used between the Army and Luftwaffe personnel, as opposed to two different colors.
Made of a Herring Bone Twill, green cotton/rayon fabric, this Tunic is ins AMAZING unused condition! It features a six button front closure with a single metal hook and eye positioned at the forward neckline and a lay down collar. Has four front pockets with button down flaps, as well as two breast pockets. The right breast has a second pattern, machine embroidered Luftwaffe breast eagle that us is machine stitched to the field blouse in the typical zig-zag pattern. There are three vertical stitched eyelets at each side of the waistline for the belt support hooks; as well an internal pocket for a field dressing. All manufacture markings are present, as well as an RBn. Number. All the larger buttons feature 99% original paint, and are of the removable type, secured by an “S” ring. Size is approx.. 38”, and the original manufacture tag is still stitched onto the front (though torn). An AMAZING unissued example, PERFECT for any collection or display!
