K004781 MEDICAL GEFREITER'S COMBINED CAREER & RANK INSIGNIA. (Armwinkel und Sanitäts Laufbahnabzeichen)

BACKGROUND: On entering Kriegsmarine service all personnel were assigned and trained for a specific career. These careers consisted of a wide variety of specialty trades and functions with some of the careers restricted to certain rank groups. On successful completion of the appropriate training, personnel were issued distinctive career insignia to be worn on the upper left sleeve of the uniforms. For EM/NCO’s the career insignia could be worn combined with the rank insignia or as separate insignia. Regulations dictated that the base color of the insignia was to match the color of the uniform it was worn on. Of Note: Rank designations were tied to the career the individual was assigned to. In this case the proper rank designation is Sanitäts-Gefreiter.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: The insignia consists of a roughly, 13cm tall, navy blue, wool base with an inverted triangular bottom and a semi-circular, rounded top. The top of the base has a hand embroidered Asclepian, (serpent intertwined on a staff), in golden yellow cotton threads, positioned above a yellow wool rank chevron. The rank chevron is machine stitched to the base. The reverse of the insignia still has its original protective black fabric backing intact.
