    Nice. Reminds me about the patches I owned for Bremen-Oslebshausen:
    the round Jahrgangsabzeichen with the 3, the cuffbands and the Luftwaffe-
    version for former students.

    Note the drawing with the other booklet shows another form of patch
    with indication TU d.Lw. I am not sure but this may indicate:
    Technische Unteroffiziersvorschule der Luftwaffe. Or is the drawing
    a misconception?

    Hi Holzwurm_1920 (and alle other members of this forum) - thanks for starting this post, as it reminds me about af letter opener I have in my Collection, which I would like to have more information about. It is a model like the Luftwaffedagger M 1934 - and it maybee is related to FlTV Bremen.

    Here is af Picture of the letter opener (aprox 20 cm. long):

    FTV 2.jpg

    and a close up of the mark:

    FTV 3.jpg

    I have found the same marking on the front of following book about FlTV Bremen:

    FTV 1.jpg

    I have reserched the marking, and the key (bottom left) is the Citylogo from Bremen, the WFG (bottom right) stands for: "Weser Flugzeugbau GmbH" and the 2 "birds" (in top) is the logo for "Rohrbach Metallflugzeugbau GmbH (this firm was bought by WFG in april 1934). FlTV Bremen was placed in WFG. History of WFG and some Pictures from FlTV Bremen can be seen on the following link (sorry I can not copy the Pictures, must be protected or something like that):

    "Weser"-Flugzeugbau GmbH - Flugzeugwerke in Bremen

    DO ANYONE HAVE ANY KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THIS LETTER OPENER ?? IS IT REALY RELATED TO FlTV BREMEN ?? WHY HAVE THEY MADE IT ?? I have never seen a letter opener like this before, only heard that there should be another one in an US-Collection.

    I hope that there are some knowledge "outthere"

    Hi Wilhelm Saris - I think that it is an V and not an U (TU d.Lw.) and I think it stand for:

    Technische Vorschule der Luftwaffe

    there could be other opinions, but that was mine.

    Interesting "Newspapers". Somewhere I have a few, also from Bremen-Oslebshausen [I need someone to clear up my storage room].

    4 is not the number of the school, but a Jahrgangsabzeichen, as Wilhelm writes.
    The education lasted 4 years, and the badge was used to denote the year of education, 1st year, 2nd year, etc.

    I think the letters in the round badge is "T.V. d. Lw". Means "Technische Vorschule der Luftwaffe". The schools changed to this name sometimes during the war, from "Flieger-Technische Vorschule".

    Hello Michael. You could be right, but have a good look at the drawing upon the
    cover of the magazine. In the upper part it looks as TU. The "U" is the same letter
    as with the word Unteroffiziers, which is upon the cover. The second drawing says
    TV, that's for sure. I also speak about misconception!

    The photo shown is from my HJ-handbook, page 440:

    img858 - kopie.jpg

    The letter-opener merely is for the WFG-concern, in my opinion. Why should it be for
    the Fl.T. V. at Bremen-Oslebshausen?
