Machine woven, second pattern, Luftwaffe eagle in white threads on a woven navy blue rayon base. The eagle has a roughly 95mm wingspan and is still on its original navy blue rayon factory roll. This machine woven eagle on a navy blue base is generally associated for wear on the mottled blue/gray shirt. Scarce original example.
The Luftwaffe pattern national eagle was originally introduced for wear by Fliegerschaft personnel on August 18TH 1934, and adopted for wear by the Luftwaffe on March 1ST 1935. The first pattern national eagle was utilized until a modified, second pattern, eagle was introduced in late 1936 or early 1937. Generally the eagle for Officers ranks was hand embroidered while the eagle for EM/NCO'S ranks was machine embroidered but machine woven eagles were also utilized in limited quantities.
