Lot's of eye candy in your photos Bob, thanks for posting.

An interesting feature of the field grey HG M43 tunics implies they were produced expressly for the HG Division. The HG cuff bands were sewn into the sleeve seam during the tunic's manufacture.

Very interesting fact, John!

Could You post a pic of the shoulder boards, please? I suppose they are field grey with white piping?

May I point out the fact (which initially I have overlooked for myself) that S/Sgt Eugene Boward, the photographer of this recce pics, was in very close relationship to the gentleman who posted them here, Gary B?

While almost every HG M43 I have seen, or we have discussed on WAF in the past, has had its cufftitle machine sewn from the manufacturer, there was at least one presented which had it cufftitle hand applied and after it left the factory.

Interesting photo of an Obergefreiter of Regiment General Göring. He already wears a Luftwaffe cap but still has the "L.P.G. General Göring" cuff title attached to his overcoat. As the Landespolizeigruppe was transferred in September 1935 to the Luftwaffe, there is a good probability that this picture was taken in autumn/winter 1935 in Berlin.

Here are some old photos of a NCO RGG tunic I picked up from a veteran about 25 years ago.

Not really Insignia, but a nice Spoon from the Casino of the "Regiment General Göring" in Berlin!

Note same thread used for eagle application and button hole bar tack..confirming factory eagle application, which is important as the eagle was factory sewn through the tunic lining. This example is unissued and retains the thread still in place for the paper issue tag.but sadly lacks the tag. This jacket is the exact one pictured in Angolias Uniforms and Traditions of the Luftwaffe..attributed to Bob Sevier. I purchased this tunic in approx 1996 from Bob (the Cracked Pot) and was sold to Bill Shea in 2002..and am quite lucky and thrilled to have it back again!
