Original German WWII Luftwaffe DAK Afrika Korps Uniform Cut Out Embroidered Breast Eagle
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a superb embroidered breast eagle from a German WWII Luftwaffe (Air Force) Uniform, in the correct DAK Afrikakorps colors. It was cut out with background fabric backing, which measures approximately 3 3/4" x 2 1/8". On the rear you can see that the eagle is sewn to the correct DAK issue dunkelgelb (dark yellow) fabric, with stitching around the edge. There are also some seams in the fabric it is sewn to, proving that it was attached to a uniform.
There is a bit of wear and age toning, but otherwise it is a great example. Ready to display!
The Afrika Korps or German Africa Corps (Deutsches Afrikakorps or DAK) was the German expeditionary force in Africa during the North African Campaign of World War II. First sent as a holding force to shore up the Italian defense of their African colonies, the formation fought on in Africa, under various appellations, from March 1941 until its surrender in May 1943. Both the Heer and Luftwaffe branches of the Wehrmacht wore uniforms specifically designed for the conditions in the more arid climate.
