A new display: Luftwaffe Feldgendarmerie.

The upper shoulderboard/collar tab set shows a Leutnant of Luftwaffen-Felddivision with the underlay of the boards in light blue, the branch colour of transport and supply, which was used until June 1943 by Luftwaffe Feldgendarmerie units.

The lower shoulderboard/collar tab set shows a Leutnant of the Division Hermann Göring with the underlay of the boards in orange, the branch colour of the Feldgendarmerie of the Heer, which was used from June 1943 onwards by the respective Luftwaffe units. The cuff title is only the NCO version, as I still haven't found an officer bullion verion of this type used from late 1942 onwards. Offers welcome!

The dark brown Feldgendarmerie cuff title which was used by Luftwaffe units was the same as used by Heer units, here the officer version in bullion.

The arm eagle shown most probably was worn by an officer of the Luftschutzpolizei. But as the eagle for Luftwaffe Feldgendarmerie officers (if ever worn) was at least made to the same specifications (see Dr Sigurd Henner/Wolfgang Böhler: Die deutsche Wehrmacht, Dienstgrade und Waffenfarben der Luftwaffe, 1939-1945, Stuttgart 2014, ISBN 978-3-613-03649-9, pp. 114/115 for HG and pp. 134/135 for FD), I decided to put it on the display also.
