    The mystery of the HJ shoulder straps with 2 colour cord

    Since a long time, I'm looking for informations about curious HJ straps of the 1938 pattern. This straps have a white piping and red Bann (regiment) numbers.

    I think that there are HJ-Streifendienst strap typ used for a short (?) time. I asked Wim Saris and he said that there is no regulation known but that he thinks too that there are HJ-Streifendienst straps. He said also that they exist with other colors of the Bann number reflecting the origin (Allgemeine-HJ, Flieger-HJ, Nachrichten-HJ, ect) of the wearer. Does someone of you know more ?

    The pair in the middle photo appear to have silver twist cord piping of HJ leaders, the others are Strief.

    Only an idea: could is be that these boards were for HJ Feuerwehrscharen as part of the Streifendienst before fire-fighting units received a special uniform?

    Yes, entirely possible Sven. I think that is the purpose of these straps now that I've done further reading on them.
