    maybe post a picture of it?

    I have some photos of it, but they are not mine. It's in another collection now, and the owner requested that I not share the photos, so I have to honour his wishes.

    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:

    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
