BACKGROUND: A joint HJ, "Hitler Jugend" (Hitler Youth), and NSKK, "National Sozialistisches Kraftfahr Korps" (National Socialist Motor Corps), "Reichsmotorschule" (National-motor-school) was established in 1936. All boys old enough to obtain their motorcycle licenses could join the "Motor-HJ," and, while undergoing training with the NSKK, wore their HJ uniforms with a "Kraftfahrraute" (Driverís-diamond) on their lower left sleeve.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A rayon diamond, 50mm tall and 45mm wide, upon which is machine woven, in silver-aluminum thread, a spread-winged eagle clutching a wreathed, mobile swastika in its talons, against a six-spoke wheel. The squared ends of the eagleís wings establishes it as the second pattern of this insignia, the first having had pointed wings. The background is reminiscent of the Hitler Youth emblem, with two diamond-shaped divisions, in white, to its right and left, and two similar divisions, in red, above and below. To the reverse, its black edges are folded over and glued unto thick, black felt padding. Removed from a uniform. Scarce.
