Thanks for posting the photo Paul. It is an awesome patch.
Fantastic Paul,and its great to see it find a proper home.I have seen one other,held it in my hands and drooled.Alas it was not for sale.
Very nice Paul. As you say, a special patch for the Gebietsinspecteure of the Motor-HJ. It was introduced by an order dated 21.4.1939.
You mentioned a second level between this and the normal Motor-HJ achievement patch Paul. Do you mean the special patch worn by those employed as staff car drivers?
According to a regulation I have here it was introduced in 1937. Here's a pic from the 1938 OB also showing the standard Motor-HJ patch:
hi folks, nice thread, but should this be in the cloth section??? what do the mods think?? pete
GARRY from what I can gather there where four insignia in the series the lowest being the one you show with the F centre for qualified driver, next the wheel in grey thread for motor HJ personnel, then wheel in yellow thread for driver instructor and lastly the one I show in gold wire for the highest inspector branch.
The one you show with the F must be very rare as I have never seen it listed for sale ever
I just saw this thread.
That's really nice.
Definately a 'keeper'.
