    Seesportabzeichen der HJ

    Hello, does somebody know the "sea sport badge of the Marine-HJ"?
    If it has still nowhere seen in spite of intensive search, it cannot be an arm badge, because lending number.
    Thank you and greeting

    Hi Atze,

    I don't have a picture of a real one but here is the version worn on dark shirts/jackets

    On blue shirts/jackets: blue cloth with red anchor
    On white shirts/jackets: white cloth with blue anchor.

    The patch was introduced in 1938 and was worn on the upper right arm.

    Hi Garry,
    thank you for the quick answer!
    I think now,the arm badge is the only existing one.
    To me one more document with a lending number is known,however, certainly this was only one sequential numbering of the lending.
    Excuse for my bad English!

    No problem Atze. It does seem odd to give a serial number to a cloth badge doesn't it. This would tend to make people think of a metal badge but the serial number is only an accounting number so that a register could be kept showing who had qualified.

    Here are some examples from Wietze's site that are up for sale there. Edit The shape is different from the one shown in the regulations book, I don't know if that's a problem or not.

    Handsome little items. For me the marine HJ seems to have more mystique because it doesn't get as much attention as the normal HJ.

    Agreed. I find it interesting that Marine HJ items tend to be expensive, but if you look at Kriegsmarine items they are priced well under other areas like SS, Heer and Luftwaffe.:confused:

    The patches Darin showed in post #5 were described by Weitze as being for those who took the A, B or C tests whilst participating on a Wehrertüchtigung course (pre-military training). Patch 2 in Darin's post shows a patch with lightning which Weitze describes as being for Level C of the marine signalling test. Now, I'm looking but I can't find anything in the regulations about these particular patches. We are all familiar with the usual MHJ qualification patches but those in Darin's post are a mystery to me. In 1942 an agreement was reached between the HJ and the Kriegsmarine to provide training for the 'Marine-Wehrfunk' which was designed to provide a pool of boys with training in German navy signals procedures (MHJ Wehrfunker). I'm wondering whether the patches with anchor and lightning were for wear by these boys but I have nothing confirming that.

    I'll keep looking but does anyone else have any more info?
