Description

The German Third Reich "Deutsche Luftwaffe" Armband was introduced in 1944 for wear by Luftwaffe flight crew personnel. It features the late style Luftwaffe eagle and lettering printed on black on a bright yellow cotton band with a row of reinforced stitching along the top and bottom edges and joined in back with machined stitched, vertical seam.

Accurately printed and period correct, Reddick Militaria's armbands are copied directly from original Third Reich pieces and feature correctly styled lettering in the proper colors. They are printed on high quality, heavy cotton fabric of the correct color and are approximately 4" wide.

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.
