Product Description: This Fire Police Dress Tunic is a beautiful, tailor made piece, in outstanding condition. It’s made from a dark blue wool fabric, with attractive, bright pink piping, indicating Fire Police. The sleeve eagle is machine embroidered in pink thread on a dark blue wool backing, and is pristine. It’s emblazoned with the word “Werkfeuerwehr” in Fraktur lettering, indicating factory fire protection personnel. The collar tabs on this handsome tunic are Bevo machine woven, and are perfect. They are neatly machine sewn to the collar. The Fire Police shoulder boards are intact, with some moth munching to the piping on one edge of one board- the only condition issue to note on this tunic. All of the original, silver pebbled buttons and belt ramps are intact and factory sewn. The interior of this Fire Police dress tunic is fully lined. There are no size or manufacturer markings, which is not at all unusual on these tailor made examples. This tunic displays extremely well, and has great visual appeal.
Historical Description: It is no exaggeration to state that most Germans in the Third Reich owned a uniform of some kind. Besides the millions of uniformed military service members, uniforms were worn by members of nearly all of the multitude of civil, political and paramilitary organizations that existed during Nazi Germany. These uniforms ranged from the finely tailored custom uniforms worn by high ranking political leaders and members of the diplomatic corps, to simple issue uniforms that were given to conscripts. There were simple work uniforms made of hard-wearing cloth, and elaborate outfits for dress and formal use, with organization-specific armbands, and branch and rank insignia. There were also field uniforms intended for wear on the battlefields by armed members of organizations that served as auxiliaries to the German armed forces. In the time before and during WWII, men and women, adults and children were all members of uniformed organizations.
