H047079 SIGNALS EM/UNTEROFFIZIER CANDIDATES 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 third pattern shoulder straps remained basically the same as the second pattern shoulder straps but were of generally poorer construction using the newly introduced grey/brown fabric that was designated, field-grey 44 and the waffenfarben was visible on the bottoms.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Early, (Circa November 1938-May 1940), second pattern, blue/green badge cloth construction, sew on shoulder strap with unit numeral, "4", a strip of bright, silver/aluminum, waffle pattern NCO’s tress, handstitched near the sew on end and lemon yellow wool, waffenfarbe piping.
