H008079 PANZER EM'S SHOULDER STRAP. (Schulterklappen)
BACKGROUND: On November 26TH 1938 the first pattern, pointed tip, shoulder straps without waffenfarben, (branch of service color), utilized by EM/NCO’s were replaced with a rounded tip shoulder strap that included the branch of service waffenfarben. Originally these second pattern straps were manufactured in blue/green badge cloth until regulations in May 1940 altered their construction to field-grey wool. These second pattern shoulder straps were worn for the duration of the war although a third and final pattern was introduced in September 1944. The different branches of service within the German army were allocated a specific identifying waffenfarbe color which was displayed as piping on the shoulder straps with pink being chosen for personnel serving with Panzer units. Of Note: Enlisted Panzer personnel’s shoulder straps signify the ranks of Panzerschütze, Panzeroberschütze, Gefreiter, Obergefreiter and Stabsgefreiter inclusively.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Panzer Shoulder Straps for Black Panzer Armored Field Jacket. Black badge cloth front with pink wool piping. The back of the strap and the slip on strap have been removed.
