H070975 ARTILLERY EM'S SHOULDER STRAP.(Schulterklappe)
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 different branches of service within the German army were allocated a particular identifying waffenfarbe color which was displayed as piping on the shoulder straps with bright red being chosen for Artillery personnel.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Early, (circa November 1938-May 1940), second pattern, blue/green badge cloth construction, sew on shoulder strap with bright red waffenfarbe piping and machine stitched unit numbers "33".
