Army regulation dating in germany

Rated 4.47/5 based on 524 customer reviews

The design was multi- functional with a unique and elaborate buttoning system that protected not only the wearer's body, but also his legs with 2 large wrap around tail skirts.It was considered quite stylish and therefor very popular among all the troops, including non-motorcycle personnel who wore the coat despite regulations.The original 1935 Service Tunic (see U124 above) was designated "Tuchrock" (cloth tunic) which was designed with an open collar.This tunic was replaced in 1938 with the 2nd pattern service tunic as we see here, with a single hook so it could be worn with an open or closed collar.This tunic was designated "Anzugrock" (Uniform Tunic) which was intended to replace both the Tuchrock and the Fliegerbluse (see UC091 below), but the Fliegerbluse continued until the end of the war giving officers and some NCO's a choice as most were responsible for purchasing their own uniforms at clothing depots or from tailors who offered higher quality options.

All 5 pebbled zinc buttons are still intact with a non adjustable belt across the back and 2 large flapless pockets on the front.The fabric used for the collar was changed several times as well, going from field gray wool to cotton, then back to wool again in 1940.The only insignia used on the original design was a single strip of collar tress for NCO's, and dual strips of tress for Officer's.The items presented here are authentic World War II relics from the Nazi Party, offered to other enthusiasts, collectors, historians, and educators.Luftwaffe 2nd Model Flyer Service Tunic (Flieger Dienstbluse) from the Flight School (Fliegerschule) Magdeburg.
