WW2 Luftwaffe Fliegerbluse
Beautifully recreated WW2 Luftwaffe Fliegerbluse.
The M40 Luftwaffe Fliegerbluse is an adaption of the M35 Fliegerbluse, which was itself descended from the field blouses worn by German troops during WW1.
The 1940 pattern differs from that adopted in 1935, by the addition of two external flapped pockets and a field dressing pocket on the inside right of the jacket. There are also two inside pockets at chest level, that are closed using a tab and button. Usually, the Soldbuch was carried in the right pocket and would show clearly through the front of the blouse.
The Fliegerbluse was the day to day uniform of the Luftwaffe. The collar was worn open in the spring and summer months and worn closed in the fall and winter using the small hook and clasp attached to the neck area. A white collarless shirt was worn under the blouse, but according to regulation the shirt's neck opening had to be open and folded back to present a "V-neck" appearance.
These fly-fronted, WW2 Luftwaffe Fliegerbluses are based on the patterns of the original, 2nd edition, 1940 garments. Featuring 5 hidden buttons, 2 external slash pockets, 3 internal pockets (including the field dressing pocket) and removable yellow piped shoulder boards, this "Flight Blouse" would make a superb addition to any re-enactors collection
