    Luftwaffe Teaspoon Markings

    Hi Everybody,

    Today I made a star purchase - a matched pair of Luftwaffe teaspoons. Yes, wait long enough and these things turn up.

    But seriously, can anyone tell me what the marking to the reverse signifies: Fl.U.V.

    Presumably, 'Fl.' relates to Flug or Flieg. Would this be some sort of unit identification or base location?

    Any help will be most gratefully received.

    All the best,
    Toby.

      Hi Toby,

      Fl.U.V. stands for: Flieger Unterkunft Verwaltung which means something like: accommodation for Luftwaffe personnel. I have a lw fork and butterknife myself, but I still haven't found a teaspoon yet. I guess it's not easy to come by them. Congratulations, it really looks very nice!

      Best wishes,

      Tim
