BACKGROUND: On November 26TH 1938 the first pattern, pointed tip, shoulder straps without waffenfarben 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.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Early, (Circa November 1938-May 1940), second pattern blue/green badge cloth construction, slip on shoulder straps with cornflower blue wool waffenfarbe and bright silver/aluminum diamond patterned NCO’s tress trim to all outside edges. Rank pips have been removed but could easily be replaced. Two strips of the NCO tress near slip on ends indicate the individual was an Offizieranwärter, (Officer Candidate).
