    Makes sense, it's sort of like a US enlisted soldier serving as warrant officer I think, if that comparisson makes sense.

    Edit:

    This is indeed a scarce strap. I've not seen one before in a collection. Very well done Paul. I'm sure it was not cheap but I would have paid well for it.

    I must agree with Wim on this item. A couple of other facts in this thread are not correct: Achern was a girl's school, so it would not be in the picture. Next, no Streifendienst association here as white piping was for all NPEA SBs. I believe that one cannot associate colors with individual schools much after 1936 according to my sources (interviews with former students from various NPEA Schools). Ron Weinand

    Hi Ron,
    I am sorry but I do not agree with you.
    Please excuse me for my stubbornness but between 1943 and 1944 , Achern ( Illenau ) was an NPEA for boys !!!!!
    I quote a text in german .
    Best regards

    Die Nationalsozialisten nutzten daraufhin die ehemalige Anstalt als eine Reichsschule für Volksdeutsche. Fast 4 Jahre lang lebten hier zwischen 400 und 500 Südtiroler Mädchen, deren Eltern 1940 für Deutschland optiert hatten. Sie wurden nach deutschen Schulplänen unterrichtet und zu Beginn vom katholischen Pfarrer aus Oberachem betreut. In einem separaten Gebäude waren 40 Polenmädchen untergebracht; sie waren zum Teil gewaltsam hierher gebracht worden, um eingedeutscht zu werden, da sie alle blond und blauäugig waren. Zwischen 1943 und 1944 war die Illenau eine Nationalpolitische Erziehungsanstalt für Jungen. 1944 wurde die Illenau geschlossen.

    this text was resumed in the archives of Illenau.
    We say Achern but the location was in Illenau exactly

    Seems these are turning up a lot lately. Here's one I just paid for. It sat on the site for too long, so I bought it. Must be raining NPEA straps.
