VERY RARE LUFTWAFFE "REMCKE" TROPICAL TUNIC
This very rare modified/prototype Luftwaffe tropical tunic has been named the "Ramcke" jacket by collectors. It has been associated with paratroopers and/or machine gunners, but very few examples or photos of it in wear have survived. The tunic is characterized by the lack of traditional breast pockets and the addition of two vertical flaps, each secured by nine black "Prym" snaps. The idea has been advanced in the past that these are two bandoleers which are sewn to the regular LW tropical tunic (made without top pockets) and that they were meant to carry belts of ammunition for the MG34. This was because the FJ troops on Crete were short of MG ammunition when they hit the DZ and this would be a means for everyone to carry extra belts into battle that could not become separated from the troops in a lost equipment container.

Inside the tops of each "pocket" or bandoleer are two loops that run horizontally, one over the other and the one in the back is slightly shorter than the one in the front which can be seen on the left side in the photo. These are simply cloth tubes and do not open up. On the right side is a narrow vertical loop that is secured with a snap.

Tunics originating from several different makers, including Holz and Binkowski and Hermann Frank, have survived- like this one, in unworn condition. They appear to have been factory or tailor modified in Germany, subsequently seeing very limited distribution. There is a very faint makers mark in this tunic (see pictures). The breast eagle has been carefully hand sewn in place, and also included are a pair of yellow-piped tropical Luftwaffe NCO's shoulder straps. Overall condition is near mint with one small hole to the lower left sleeve.

LUFTWAFFE HERMANN GORING DIVISION FIELD BLOUSE (Feldbluse)
Late issue four pocket service blouse in field grey for the Hermann Göring Division. This unique tunic was intended for wear by members of HG only, and is constructed of later quality brown grey wool and with cut similar to the Heer M43 blouse.
It is lined in pale grey blue artificial silk as found in field grey and black HG wraps, with belt hook support straps made of the same fabric, with size and RBNr markings above the inner bandage pocket. Further markings are also to be seen on the wool and the backing to the lining.
The national emblem is applied in the zigzag machine method and has a blue backing, The Hermann Goring sleeveband was applied by machine as the garment was made and has a better quality background of moleskin. All blue painted pebbled buttons match and are originally stitched, as are all collar liner, cuff and bandage pocket buttons.
Included are a pair of late issue Luft blue shoulder straps piped in pink rayon and having backing of fabric that matches the tunic- the pink denotes Panzerjagers of the HG division only- very rare. Furthermore, the tunic includes its original button-on collar liner.
The condition is near mint and it would be difficult to upgrade this rare and appealing tunic. There are very few of these tunics in collections, and this is certainly the most reasonably priced of those available for sale.

VERY RARE WAFFEN SS PALMEMUSTER PATTERN CAMOUFLAGE SMOCK.(Tarnjacke)
This 1st pattern two-sided reversible tarnjacke ( camouflage smock) features the rare Palm design that was first introduced in 1940 and utilized until 1942 when the Plain Tree and later Dot patterns were introduced. Camouflage smocks were discontinued in 1944 with the introduction of the HBT M44 general purpose camouflage uniform.
Surviving examples of these early Palm smocks are rare. This smock displays very little wear but two period modifications. The elastic around the neckline has been removed as well as the elasticized waistband and cuffs of the two sleeves have been removed down from where the elastic originally was.
The front opens below the neckline and extends to mid-chest. This opening is secured by ten eyelets through which a drawstring passes. There are two vertical reinforced flap pockets on the front/sides. The smock shows very little wear, damage, or fading, other than the aforementioned modifications.

LUFTWAFFE "HERMANN GORING DIVISION" SIGNALS TUNIC
Luftwaffe Signals Stabsfeldwebel's four pocket service tunic in private purchase quality for an NCO in the Hermann Goring Division.
This tunic in officer grade material features matching copper brown piped shoulder boards, brown piped white collar tabs, and a tresse bordered HG cufftitle.
The collar is bordered with white twistcord piping. The Luftwaffe aluminum flatwire eagle over the right breast pocket shows excellent detail.
There are loops for a badge on the left breast pocket. The interior features the tailor's label (Georg und Fritz Roder, Furth) and shows light wear overall.
The tunic is lined with rayon. There is sewn a "D" ring through the lower left hip pocket from which a dagger would be suspended.
All insignia matches each other and the tunic, and have clearly been made and applied by the tailor at the time of manufacture.
This lovely tunic also comes with a photo and document that we believe relate to the original owner, Franz Seider.
The named photo does not show this particular tunic in wear- its not an HG tunic and the rank is one lower, but it does appear to be a signals branch uniform.
The document is a report of death post-war in a French hospital.
As mentioned, these pieces were found together and could provide the basis of some rewarding research for someone with the time and connections!
