H020380 INFANTRY UNTEROFFIZIER/OFFIZIER CANDIDATES SHOULDER STRAPS. (Schulterklappen)
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 although a third and final pattern was introduced in September 1944.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Early, (November 1938-May 1940), second pattern, blue/green badge cloth construction, shoulder straps with diamond patterned NCO’s tress to all but the slip on ends and white rayon waffenfarbe. The slip on ends of the straps each have dual strips of silver/aluminum, diamond patterned NCO’s tress handstitched in place. The shoulder straps signify Infantry personnel with the rank of Unteroffizier who had been chosen as an Offizieranwärter, (Officer Candidate).
