K013081 BLOCKING WEAPON MECHANIC EM'S CAREER SLEEVE INSIGNIA. (Sperrwaffen Mechaniker 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.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: The insignia consists of a roughly, 60mm diameter, ribbed white cotton twill base with a machine embroidered vertical naval mine superimposed over a multi-cogged wheel with four internal spokes all in cornflower blue cotton threads. The outer edge of the cotton base has a strip of protective white rayon tape machine stitched in place.
