S004982 GENDARMERIE NCO'S COLLAR TABS. (Kragenspiegel)
BACKGROUND: On June 17TH 1936, Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler was appointed to the newly created position of Chef der Deutschen Polizei im Reichsministerium des Innern, (Chief of the German Police in the National Ministry of the Interior), effectively giving him full control of all police agencies within Germany. As a result of this appointment and the restructuring of all the separate German state police into a single national police force new regulations were instituted in July 1936 to bring about uniformity in dress for all police through-out the country. One of the new uniform regulations was the introduction of specific Truppenfarbe, (Branch of Service Colors), to identify the assorted branches of Police service with orange being allotted to personnel serving with the Gendarmerie, (Rural Police). Police personnel wore the collar tabs in matching pairs with the base being in the appropriate branch of service color. The collar tabs signified rank groups with the specific rank being indicated by the shoulder boards/straps. Of Note: The German Police had no enlisted ranks with the lowest rank being an Unterwachtmeister which was equivalent to the German army rank of Unteroffizier.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Machine woven collar tabs with a orange rayon base with machine woven litzen in bright, silver/aluminum flat-wire threads. The orange base shows through as the branch of service and center stripes and the collar tabs are trimmed in fine, bright, twisted, silver/aluminum cording
