    HJ shoulderstrap with M

    I saw the thread on WAF concerning the 'M' shoulderstrap but I'm not an association member over there so can't post pictures. Anyway, I remembered seeing a photo in a 1939 copy of the Westfalen HJ publication 'Unsere Fahne'. The article was written in 1939 but the photos are clearly older than that. It describes the work of the 'Funktechnische Bereitschaft' in Münster and shows a picture of a boy wearing a strap that seems to have the M on it. Now, I've personally never found anything in any publications which mention any straps with an 'M' designation so I shouldn't be seeing an M but no matter how I look at it I see one. What do you think?

    Going by the triangle this boy is not from Bann Münster. Looks like 'Ost' on the top line.

    Interesting photo Garry. Does indeed look like an "m", and most definetly an earlier period photo.

    Edit, I think Bart is way off with thinking it is for Kriegsmarine IMO.

    I agree Darin. As you said on that thread, very interesting that the straps shown are clearly converted which hints at something either short-lived like LBA or something late-war. Can't for the life of me think of anything beginning with M which would make sense on a HJ shoulder strap though.

    How about "Militärschüler" (military student)? Students at some schools were called that, eg. "Militärschüler der Fliegertechnischen Schulen"

    HE DOES APPEAR TO BE DOING A REPAIR OR MAKING A radio device with his solder iron in hand. Wonder if the m is for a tech of some sort anyhow very interesting and something new to ponder
