Did some quick search. Originally, they were part of supply and administration section. In 1943, they changed to the army colour, orange brown. Depends on your scenario

well I am currently doing fallshirmjager fg, so its artound the time they set up airborn fg units which was mid war, (slightly off topic now sorry) just found a link whilst trying to do some searches on this, an entire topic with one chap claiming that luftwaffe never had any form of Feldgendarmeri at all during the entire war, and that he has never seen nor read any reports stating this to be a false assumption, alas i cant find it again grr, but it was a funny forum.

the FG department of the Luftwaffe was not an independent one, as with the Army. It was part of the Supplys department, that is why you'd see them sharing the same collar tabs. As a confirmation to this, there exist HG white tabs with light blue piping (issued january 1943).

As Graham would put it, not my intention of direction persons away from the forum, but this is definately a good read.

i have a Luftwaffe officers eagle in silver bullion, sold to me from the U.S., i cant find out if this correct or not, next time i see my friend from Deutschland im sure he will tell whether i have been HAD!!
The problem with the Luftwaffe Feldgendarmerie is that there isnt 1 good book on the subject, strange really. Osprey have been wrong a number of times, i dont any longer recommend them for reference.
can try this though, http://gmic.co.uk/index.php/topic/30734 ... luftwaffe/
they seem to have quite a good discussion board, costs MONEY to join though, that's why im no longer a member
