N025581 TeNo EM/NCO'S CUFFTITLE. (Ärmelstreiffen)
BACKGROUND: The 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 more and more a para-military organization with its direction becoming more controlled by the Waffen-SS. When TeNo personnel were attached to army units for assistance they were issued with one of two distinctive cufftitles with one cufftitle being worked in bright silver/aluminum threads for wear on the field-grey service tunic and the other cufftitle worked in matte silvery/grey threads for wear on the fatigue and work tunic.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Roughly, 39mm wide, 43cm long, ribbed black rayon construction cufftitle with BeVo woven Gothic script, "Technische Nothilfe" in matte silvery/grey cotton threads. Both the top and bottom edges of the cufftitle are bordered in vertically woven matte silvery/grey cotton threads. The reverse of the cufftitle has the typical loose, vertical threads from the weaving process. The cufftitle is in overall excellent condition with light age.
