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.
Made of leather, this Signal Flare Pouch is in EXCELLENT used condition. It was designed to hold 18 individual flares, and be carried via a should strap or belt. Some slight wear, scratches, and marks due to the age, but nothing that detracts. No markings that I can see. One of the rivets at the back has come away (see last photo), but that could easily be rectified if one wished. Note that the empty cartridges shown in the listing inside the pouch are NOT included, and are for reference only. This auction is for the leather pouch ONLY. Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!
