Original Bulgarian - German WWII Fighter Pilot Aircraft sheep's fleece Waistcoat

This is a Bulgarian pilot fleece-lined waistcoat of the WWII period. The model was designed for the WWII German Wehrmaht bomber pilots and soldiers at the Eastern front.

In World War II, as an ally of the Austro- Hungarian Empire and Germany, Bulgaria exchanged all types of military equipment with these two countries. During WWII Bulgaria supplied the Germans with sheep's uniforms and waistcoats like the one we are offering.
The same waistcoats were sewn for the Bulgarian royal army. They were mainly used by the pilots and tank troops. At the end of the WWII when the army was led by the communists and joined the Red army, these sheep's suits and waistcoats were also employed by motorists and automobile battalions. (At the photo applied you can see Bulgarian soldiers in Yugoslavia, the winter of 1944.)

The waistcoat is made of a good-quality sheep's fur extremely appropriate for the cold winter months. The fleece is used as natural lining inside that could provide protection against wind. Metal buttons with Bulgarian royal lion, army symbol.  Condition is authentic. One small hole is seen as well as many rust spots from buttons oxydation.

Size: M
