WW2 German paratrooper White parachute canopy and lines

Post by Rob Sellers »

Hi Fellas,
WW2 German Paratrooper /Fallschirmjager parachute canopy in white silk and probably was made in about 1943 due to the limited markings.
This is 28 panel chute ,correct for paratroops in white 8) which IMHO is a lot harder to find than the Camo verity.
The lines have been cut off but are included,except for 2.
The canopy is white ivory,very clean and been well stored over the years in a smoke free home, shows not rips or tears but the downside is 3 gores have been removed out as a section and amazingly still present so a fairly straight forward repair if you know a dress maker :wink: .
The price is £600 using gift payment through paypal,Cheque if your in the UK, Bank transfer,Registered mail or cash on collection..

This was a pick up by a member of Pattons Third Army and was on his staff.The Vets Daughter kindly made me a file about here Late Father,this will be included with the chute....nice bit of history :D ...He apparently bought this chute back thinking his Wife could make curtains...strange curtains :)
Any questions please ask, I do post worldwide and will endeavour to find the quickest and least costliness way of getting it to you..
Thanks
Rob
