The uniform of Oblt. Hans Kolbow, Kolbow was a member of JG 51 when he was KIA in July 1941 when his Me109 was hit by Russian ground fire when he was attacking vehicle columns, He bailed out but his parachute failed to open and he fell to his death. He was posthumously awarded the Knitescross on the 27th of July 41, he also was awarded the Spanish cross and other Spanish awards for his service with the Legon Condor. Adolf Galland flew his first combat mission in Spain as Hans Kolbows wingman. Kolbow had a number of victorys during the Battle of Britian. this uniform features on the cover of the book Uniforms and traditions of the Luftwaffe Vol 1 (see photos) the 2nd patt. Luftwaffe dagger is not Kolbows.

three Luftwaffe photos found while surfing. One from the archives and the other posted on WAF some time ago, stated as source unknown. Rare shot of NCO wearing a private purchase tunic as well. Both first pattern (drooptail) and second pattern aluminum eagle shown.
