Luftwaffe Drill HBT Blouse

What's my Size?

Only for the most dedicated

The Blouse for the Fatigue uniform was intended to be used for daily chores at the barracks, at the range, or simply to cool off for in hot climates when not wearing the woollen blue-gray Uniform. The Luftwaffe HBT Drillich Blouse is based off original samples from our collection, and is characterised by:

  • 2 pairs of five-eyelets loops for belt hooks.
  • Inner left chest pocket
  • Metal Hook to close collar
  • No pockets on the outside
  • No lining but reinforcements made from same fabric.

Like the Fliegerbluse, it can be worn with an open or closed collar, however, when ordered, it was tucked inside the Drill Trousers.

Historical Information about the Luftwaffe off-white Drillich Uniform

Since the formation of the Luftwaffe, the troops required a fatigue (Drillichzeug) uniform for barracks drill, indoor fatigue work, training, at the firing range and during combat training. The uniform consisted of an HBT Blouse, based on the fliegerbluse and a pair of straight leg trousers, made from strong linen in HBT weave. The colour of the fabric ranged from raw-gray, to off-white colour and was eventually superseded by a reed-green version in 1943.  

The special working uniform for ground crews, as their service uniform, had exactly the same cut as the Drillich uniform, but dyed in black.
