Re: LW tropical shoulder boards

Appears to be a good set of LW straps - I like the button-hole details and construction.

Re: LW tropical shoulder boards

Agreed good ones, there was a horde found of these back in the late 80's.

Re: LW tropical shoulder boards

Many thanks my friends.
They are good for me, the construction look good but they are not the lined on the reverse, as normal. Is this a variant?

Re: LW tropical shoulder boards

Luftwaffe straps are not lined like Heer ones. This is how these should be.

Chris
I know that Lw straps are normaly lined with a fabric which is diffefent of that of the top, but not wool like the army. Isn't it correct?

Re: LW tropical shoulder boards

Agree the backing on Herr and LW straps are not at all the same, these are how LW straps should look.
