BACKGROUND: Originally instituted in January 1932 the NSFK Nationalsozialistisches Fliegerkorps, (National Socialist Flying Corps), was soon absorbed into the DLV, Deutscher Luftsport Verband, (German Air Sports League). On April 17TH 1937 the NSFK, was reestablished and at the same time the DLV, was disbanded. The NSFK was mainly a voluntary organization with a small cadre of paid personnel. The NSFK’s mandate covered all aspects of civilian flight and the organization was divided into three main sections consisting of aircraft, balloons and glider flight. As an affiliate organization of the NSDAP, personnel serving with the NSFK originally wore the "Tradition Uniform" as other NSDAP related organizations with minor variations. On its reestablishment in April 1937 the NSFK introduced specific uniforms and headgear that were based on the uniforms utilized by the DLV with minor variations. Originally the 1937 pattern uniforms only utilized a single shoulder strap/board until regulations of July 1941 introduced wear of two shoulder straps/boards. Of Note: The NSFK service tunic was almost identical to the Luftwaffe pattern service tunic.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Blue/grey wool construction, sew on shoulder strap features yellow wool waffenfarbe piping.
