Fallschirmjager Uniform Question

Guys,
Need a little clarification - I'm getting ready to do some new para figures. All the figures will be enlisted from Flieger to Unteroffizier. I have been looking at original uniforms on the web for my info. Some uniforms have yellow piping all the way around the collar on the tunic and some do not. Did the early uniforms have it and the later uniforms not have it? Is one more correct than the other? Thanks, Bob

Re: Fallschirmjager Uniform Question

Waffenfarbe (the piping around the collar) was removed after 20 Mar 1940, according to Chris Mason in Soldat Vol 8. But is was not uncommon to find FJs wearing fliegerbluse with retained waffenfarbe after 1940.
