ORIGINAL GERMAN WWII DEUTSCHE LUFTWAFFE ARMBAND 

 

THESE ORIGINAL DEUTSCHE LUFTWAFFE ARMBANDS ARE HARD TO FIND 

It features a Luftwaffe Eagle over the text "DEUTSCHE LUFTWAFFE", both printed in black on yellow fabric.

This armband was issued to the German Aircrews late in WW2

This was due to German civilians mistaking German crews as enemy fliers and treating them as such.

As a result of the similarity in the flight suits and flying helmets of almost all nations German aircrew personnel downed over Germany were being misidentified as Allied aircrew personnel which prompted the OKL to introduce the "Deutsche Luftwaffe", (German Air Force), armband on December 29TH 1944 as a form of identification for downed German pilots and aircrew personnel.
