BACKGROUND: The Army Mobilization Order of March 12TH 1937, introduced a wide variety of armbands that were worn to identify personnel performing specific duties or functions for the Armed Forces. Most of the armbands were worn on the upper left sleeve of uniformed or non-uniformed personnel and were worn only while the individual was performing the specific duty or function identified by the armband. As the war progressed it was deemed that additional armbands were necessary to identify the growing sector of non-uniformed, non-German civilian personnel serving in a military capacity with any branch of the armed forces. As a result assorted identifying armbands were introduced as required. This armband was introduced on October 1ST 1941 for wear by non-German civilians serving the Armed Forces and Russian Auxiliaries when not in uniform.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Yellow rayon construction armband with black printed script to the obverse, "Im Dienst der Deutschen Wehrmacht". (In Service of the German Armed Forces). Reverse of armband has a machine stitched vertical seam.
