Post Your Flieger Bluse
Hi All,

Having started a thread on Fliegerbluse values, I wondered if those members who own them would be prepared to post pictures, so other collectors can compare originals against future purchases and use the thread as a reference. As soon as mine arrives I'll post but in the interim can we get this going?



PS if this has been done in a consolidated fashion before just point me to the thread(I could not find one whem I searched) and ignore this post.

Hi Mark, here is a link to some pics of one mine.


Cheers, Ade.

Jos,Ade Jack,

Great tunics, thanks for posting. Keep them coming.

Jack got to ask, the fliegermutze with the edelweiss what unit? Was this a Squadron insignia,official,unofficial?.

Here is mine,I also have a line on a nice Flak Der Spiess flyers blouse complete with the visor cap that I hope too get soon.Jay Parisi

Nice one Jay!

Mark, I think that it was collector applied before I got the cap. The method of attachment was just too sloppy. However, there was a bomber group that used the edelweiss as its unit symbol. You will find photos of them with the edelweiss sewn to their overseas caps. The flaw in this one though is that all the photos that I've seen show the edelweiss on the left side rather than the right.
