The Original Uniform Jacket Of Hauptmann Geerdtz

The first aviation units’ uniform jacket was Prussian blue with red piping and silver buttons. We show here for the first time in publication Franz Geerdtz’ jacket, who was one of the first four German military aviators. The pre-war shoulder boards of his Captains uniform are trimmed with gold colour.

This is certainly one of the most rare examples worldwide of an early Prussian Aviator uniform, in particular because it´s an early one and the wearer is known to us.
