          A slightly mis-matched Unteroffizier pair with light wear, not sure why the Tresse faded slightly more on one.

                Flak LW tropical straps - very interesting material combination IMO,not often to see this smooth cotton on the boards
                Hope you like it !

                  Very desirable straps Gustav, thanks for posting them here!

                  Finding a match to the tropical Oberfeldwebel medical strap Hans? The odds of a big lottery win are probably better! But am very happy to have the single example!

                    Luftwaffe Tropical Shoulder Straps

                    Hi, I've been stalking some of the threads here and have a question. When the HG Division was piecemealed out to Tunisia, did any of their Panzer Abteilungen make the trip? I know they were in Sicily and were evacuated to the Italian mainland and distinguished themselves in both places. If they were in North Africa, did they wear the same tropical uniform as the LW ground troops? If so, would they have had pink piped shoulder boards?

                        John,
                        In post #1 you mention your book. Please forgive my ignorance, but, (I seek to be enlightened) what book would that be and is it still in print?
                        Thanks,
                        CBrown

                            Great pairs of Flak boards Gustav!

                            Here are the tropical boards I still have left after doing some thinning.

                              I can't imagine this collection before thinning ...

                              Very nice, Willi!



                              Anyone who has a EM Flak pair for a tropical shirt to sell? For a mannequin.
