Default Luftwaffe Tropical Shoulder Straps

Anyone with my book understands my passion for Luftwaffe tropical uniforms. Found these Nachrichten straps at the Max. Normally would have passed on them, but had to have them because of a few short threads.

Detail, probably safe to call them unissued.

Picked these up at the Max too, mostly because they were Unteroffizier.

So naturally wondered if this was once the tie that bound them.

A favorite pair because of significant wear and fading. These are not from the show, nor new.

Another worn twill pair, but not as faded as the Unteroffizier pair

Very nice, John!

The only tropical pair I have is an unused flight Feldwebel similar to Yours in post #6.

Do You have any HG tropical straps?

Have only seen a few pairs of HG tropical straps and did not feel confident about any of them. Are your Feldwebel straps on twill or lighter shirt material?

A pair of OR Flak straps.
