    Hi folks
    It's not important anymore; I just heard from the daughter of a Waffen SS officer, that she "used to make" similar cuftitles or armbands for her Dad, if there were no official ones in existence.

    They were afterwards stamped with a unit stamp, which made them oficial.

    Perhaps a new item for collectors to find ???

    Cheers,

    That's very interesting to know Haen. Was she doing that in accordance with an instruction/authorisation?

    Ï really don't know, but keep in mind that a great number of private tailors also made uniform paraphernalia on officers uniforms when the need arose.

    Especially towards the end of the war there were a lot of improvisations made, when existing stock was depleted or not accessible.

    For example I received a "cufftitle" 'Landsturm Niederlande (note the GERMAN spelling), that obviously was not standard issue, "
    When I brought it to my Commander's attention he said something like : "Who cares anymore?".

    I think, there is a whole new field of collecting possible, just like misstamped coins. Oh well, only about 10 more years, and everything goes.

    Hi Antonio,

    yes, there are such picture. Especially the HJ-Geländesportwart
    HJ-Schiesswart
    HJ-Skiwart
    HJ-Sportwart
    cufftitles can be seen in different combinations.
    I have 1 portrait with 2 of them + 'HJ-Streifendienst' in the middle but sadly the arm of the boy is at the edge of the photo. More interesting are photos with more than 1 triangle :)

    Regards,
    Sven.

    If so, it was with the same order as it was done in the army. Meaning the eldest will be at the top of the rest?

    Regards
