GERMAN WWII 3RD MODEL 1940 PARATROOPER SMOCK.

The incredibly rare 3rd model 1940 pattern step-in paratrooper smock. The smock has seen some service wear, there are various discolorations across the front of the smock and in the elbow and seat area, there is one 4 cm square patch to the lower right thigh area as the garment is viewed, a minor stitch repair to the collar and one very small stitch repair to a back panel, apart from that the smock is faultless. The two upper zips are marked ‘Prym’, both with their leather pullers, the two lower zips are also marked ‘Prym’ again with their leather pullers, the main front zip and the small crotch zip with brown leather pullers both marked ‘Rapid’, the two hip zips are both marked ‘Elite’ and are with brown leather pullers with the zips, all of the zips are fully operational. All of the male/female pop stud fixings are complete and operational. The wind cuff out of the right hand sleeve has been removed, the left hand wind cuff is in place. Faint traces of a size stamping to the upper inner right hand pocket lining material. The smock is complete with its correct pattern eagle. These paratrooper smocks are incredibly difficult to obtain and especially in this unaltered virtually undamaged condition. Interestingly the four pocket zip cover flaps are of a different shade of speckled material, identical to the material used for constructing the summer weight flight suit. These smock were also made in the flight suit material however these are incredibly scarce. The incidents of the pocket zips being in a different material is another example that we have found over many years especially in the camouflage clothing of scraps from the floor being used to finish off the small portions of a garment such as pocket flaps and or belt loops.

GERMAN WWII LUFTWAFFE FLAK STANDARD.

One of the most attractive and desirable artefacts of the Third Reich was the regimental flags, whether they be Army or Luftwaffe, the Kriegsmarine flag cannot even be mentioned as one has never been discovered, this is a very fine example of the Luftwaffe flak artillery standard. Good bright colours overall, one minor stain to one of the white rays on the Luftwaffe eagle and swastika side, one tiny spot of oxidisation to the silver embroidery to the right hand wing tip of the large Luftwaffe eagle, the flag is with its complete silver fringe, there are no areas of shredding or degrading of the silk and it is complete with a set of its streamers. When removed from the original pole the flag was not crudely cut as so many were, it had been unpicked and therefore the Berlin Embroidery Company’s logo is still visible to the end that wraps around the now replaced rather thinner pole , it is marked ‘H & S Berlin No.20’, with a complete set of streamers. At present it is affixed to a non original pole and would have to be removed from the pole for shipping.

Regimentals were fortunate enough to purchase five individual items of his estate including this magnificent rare Allach figure of the Luftwaffe officer standing 36cm in height, the figurine is in absolutely superb condition with excellent clear detail within the construction of all the decorations worn by the officer, standing on its own attached plinth with Luftwaffe eagle and swastika proud to the glaze. SS Allach markings within an octagon to the base with the designer’s name ‘T.Karner’ and model number ‘65’. Field Marshall Albert Kesselring, ( known to his troops as Smiling Albert ) 1885 to 1960 had a highly decorated military career that spanned both World Wars, joining the army at 19 he rose rapidly through the ranks to Leutnant in 1906 to Hauptmann of the General Staff in WWI, Oberstleutnant in the army of the Weimar Republic and Commander of the 4th Artillery Regiment in Dresden in 1931, transferring to the still secret Luftwaffe in 1934, became Chief of the Luftwaffe Administration Office, General Leutnant and Chief of the Luftwaffe General Staff in 1936, General of flying troops in 1937, Supreme Commander of Luft Fleet 1 in 1938, awarded the Knights Cross on the 30th September 1939 for the Battle of France , during the Battle of Britain, he was appointed General Field Marshall on the 19th July 1940, further serving then on the Eastern Front after June 1941 then subsequently in Italy and the Mediterranean as Supreme Commander, awarded the oak leaves to the Knights Cross February 42 and the swords in July 1942, awarded the diamonds in July 1944 for his leadership and tatics role in the Italian campaign, severely wounded in November 1944, he was reappointed Supreme Commander of the South on the 3rd May 1945 and on the 4th May he signed the surrender of Army Group South, taken prisoner by American forces, sentenced to death by a British & Military Court in 1947 in Venice, moving images of which can be seen on YouTube, this was subsequently commuted to life imprisonment, released in 1952 on the grounds of ill health. Kesselring was a first class ground commander and engineered the slow decisive withdrawal right up the leg of Italy, until the situation became untenable and had no alternative but for surrender.
