The shoulder strap slides generally had a unit numeral or specific designation letter chain stitched in the appropriated waffenfarbe, (Branch of Service Color). 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 or unit designation on the slides, with white being chosen for Infanterie, (Infantry) personnel.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Field-grey wool construction slip on shoulder strap slides with a machine stitched seam to the reverse and white chain stitched numerals "112" to the obverse.
