Luftwaffe chaplains uniforms by TheFalconette Luftwaffe chaplains uniforms by TheFalconette
Luftwaffe's chaplains uniforms. Three grades shown here - Deacon (Priest assistant), Chaplain and Bishop. Such uniforms worn only in the church or on other religious occasions - in daily life chaplains wear usual Beamte uniforms with purple color insignia. Note special cross sign in the hat. Catholic and protestant chaplains have the same uniforms.

In an alternate history, anything IS possible. Good luck - and don't forget the Raumwaffe!!

Believe it or not, it took me this long to return to the site and find that I have mail. Guess you can tell from that, that I am an infrequent frequenter of DA. Anyway, RAUMWAFFE is the name I've given to a Gereman Space Force. I've also seen SternKriegsMarine used in this regard.

Nice job, but you do know that in reality, the Luftwaffe had no chaplains - the Army (Heerespfarrer, -oberpfarrer, Feldbischof) and the Kriegsmarine (Marinepfarrer, -oberpfarrer, -dekan) did, however. And, naturally, the Waffen-SS didn't either. In the latter part f the war, the Army and Navy chaplain ranks were changed to Wehrmachtpfarrer, -oberpfarrer, -dekan. Good luck with your book!!

Thanks, I know :) But it's an alt-history book, so I found it logical to make own chaplains for all three independent branches of the Wehrmacht :)

The National Socialists will be displeased with polluting young Luftwaffe minds with chaplains . . . it was already too late for the Army and the Navy, what with church parades and the like. Tsk tsk. (Is that Friedrich III as your avatar?) Sorry this is so incredibly late, and your missive was sent on my birthday!!
