Interesting pictures ..!


If they're going to fake this one, they should make only one, because more would be very, very unbelievable.., the eagle, the right collar and waist band are quit a bit of a problem .. etc..


Sofar we haven't seen one complete decent real example of these white jackets in all those years.., chance of finding one is practical zero.
So, let the faking start and amaze us with your wonderful creation ..

Why are these jackets so rare? Were very few made and issued?

Yes, not too many guys had a white jacket, compared to the blue jackets.
Plus they're very fragile and quickly dirty..think most didn't survive the war.

Quite famous photo. I’ve always wondered how he managed to destroy the neck in this way! There’s no way the moths are the guilty!!!

Straps from a shoulder harness or parachute would tear that area up.

This pilot was probably Herman von Werra's friend.

I think the main thing is that with the help of this find we have uncovered the secret with which this thread began.

Here is the lining of the upper left side of the jacket. She is also a pocket for maps.

Best regards,
Sergey
