BACKGROUND: In August 1929 the SS incorporated the wear of rank collar tabs on the left side of the collar of the service tunic. The SS collar tabs were originally adopted from the earlier rank collar tabs as utilized by the SA, Sturmabteilung, (Storm Troops). The SS collar tabs remained in usage through-out the war with a couple of minor alterations. Originally EM/NCO’s collar tabs for the ranks of SS-Schütze to SS-Hauptscharführer inclusively were piped in twisted white cord from May 1933 to October 1934. In October 1934 the piping was modified to alternating twisted black and silver/aluminum cord piping. The final modification in August 1940 eliminated all piping from EM/NCO’s collar tabs.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Third and final pattern, left hand side rank collar tab as introduced in May 1940 and utilized until the end of the war. Black wool construction collar tab with a narrow, bright silver/aluminum strip of tress with an interwoven central black stripe positioned near the forward edge. The collar tab is mounted on a tan buckram backing. The collar tab indicates the Waffen-SS rank of SS-Sturmmann.
