Please see the photos for condition and size, there is a ruler photo'd with the Arm Band for correct measurements. Original WW2 Fascist Italian Air Force, Hand Embroidered Wings With Artillery Cannons, With the Black Shirt Axe, Arm Band. This Arm band was used by a Volunteer in the Italian Air Force Flak Artillery! Which in the East - Russia and the South - Afrika Campaign, Italy was Germany's strongest Allie.
Italian Air Force Flak soldiers would have fought along side the German Wehrmacht. This Arm Band is in wonderful Combat used condition. The Flag Colors of Italy are a little faded, as well as the Yellow Hand Embroidery and the Material on the reverse looks to be sweat stained, But, the Good News is, the Artistic Hand done Embroidery is in Wonderful condition no tears and fully readable!! If interested please see my other listing's. This is a very beautiful piece and would look excellent on any Uniform Restoration.
I wanted to add an extra note, I noticed more now, than before, the Lighting Bolts coming down under, what looks to be Bombs, not Cannons? That Perhaps, They were Bombing, as the Lighting Bolts indicate, and they are of course under the Air Force wings. So this Arm band, May have been a Volunteer unit for the Black Shirt Combat Pilots??
