An extremely rare set of Uniform Insignia to a Luftwaffe General and appropriate to the ranks of General Der Flieger, Flakartillerie, Luftnachrichtentruppe and Fallschirmtruppe.
The set comprises his breast eagle and a matched pair of collar tabs.
Overall condition is very good used with the eagle showing a dark toning to the hand embroidered gold bullion which sits on a Luftwaffe blue grey wool backing, free from moth or other damage.
Both Collar Tabs are very good showing only evidence of genuine moderate service use but without damage. Both are marked 22 to the reverse which may have been the tailorâ€™s price.
Sadly virtually all of the history to this set has been lost, the family only knowing that they were taken from a Luftwaffe General taken prisoner near Paris by the British crew of a Bren Gun carrier.
