N003179 TeNo MEMBERíS STICK PIN. (Technisch Nothilfe Mitglied Aufschlagnadel)

BACKGROUND: TeNo, Technischen Nothilfe (Technical Emergency Corps), was originally established in September 1919, of trained, voluntary, civilian personnel to maintain and repair essential services in the event of a natural disaster or emergency. Many of its personnel were ex-service men, and a large amount of them had some type of specialized technical training which was key to its mandate. TeNo was a civilian organization administered under the Minister of the Interior, until mid-1939, when it became an official State organization under control of the Police, which in turn was controlled by the SS. With this change in status a small nucleus of salaried officials were employed to run the organization. As the war dragged on, TeNo became increasingly a para-military organization with its direction becoming more controlled by the Waffen-SS.
