    HJ Marine Shoulder Boards Bann 663

    Marine HJ Shoulder Boards Bann 663

    I know this these are Marine-HJ Shoulder Boards for HJ Bann 663.
    These seem to have straps in the back. Are they from 1938? What HJ-Gebiet and Area was Bann 663 in? Thank you for you help. JME

    Well, have a look at this impressive page that Garry put together for the Bann numbers:

    In 1938, there is no Bann 663 appearing. For 1941/42 (as per lists), Bann 663 belings to Ost/Wartheland.

    As far as I know (and I dont know htat much), the shoulder boards for 663 and 664 are the most frequent to be found.

    That's right, Bann 663 Litzmannstadt and Bann 664 Litzmannstadt Land - Lentschutz (later Litzmannstadt Land) were in Ost/Wartheland and don't appear until the final list (both Banne were raised in 1941).

    These are "slip on" style meant to be removed during laundering. This is the most common Marine HJ Bann number that I have seen, seems everyone has a set of them. Rumor is that there was a horde find of unissued straps somewhere in Eastern Germany years back.
