Good looking first pattern tropical Luftwaffe fliegerbluse. Shows some sun fading and has some small signs of wear. Upgraded example that started as an enlisted men tunic, that was period retailored to an officers tropical jacket for a Hauptmann of the flying personnel ‘Flieger’ (could either be a pilot or a paratrooper (fallschirmjäger)). The tunic has a good size and would fit a normal mannequin withouth problems. All of it’s original tan coated buttons are still in place, only the ones on the shoulder boards have been replaced for officer examples for the sewn in boards. Very nice tropical Luftwaffe tunic, not often encountered!
