    Just for general info this is one of the three variations you'll see of these HJ/DJ sports shirts.

    Type 1 (the oldest type) had the cloth diamond sewn to the chest. This type was replaced in accordance with regulations dated 1.7.1938 by:

    Type 2 - red band woven into the shirt with a seperately applied swastika or:

    Type 3 - had two HJ armbands applied (with the second armband on the rear of the shirt without white quadrant and swastika).

    The 1938 regulation is seems odd to me because it permits two methods of showing the red band. Unfortunately there is no reason given for this so I'm wondering whether the sports shirts themselves were not subject to RZM approval at the time of the regulation? Does anyone have a type 1 shirt with RZM tag?
    hi garry i dont think you would be able to find a type 1 shirt with rzm do you?

    cheers ewan

    The type 1 existed during the RZM period Ewan so it's possible that you might find one for sale somewhere.

    Really interesting. So maybe some "cut" armbands were sewn on sports shirts!

    Hello,
    see also the last quiz. Yes, maybe that one sees for that reason cut armbands.

    This was taken in the summer of 1938 around the time when the 'Type 2/3' vest was being introduced. As you can see he has the diamond over the left chest instead of central and on a civilian t-shirt. Just one of those oddities you see
