    NaPoBi Cuff Title

    Morning Gents,

    a quick question: on which arm was the CT supposed to be worn? I have a photograph where the boy wears it on his right upper arm. On all other photos shown here on this thread the boys wear it on their left lower sleeve.

    Hi Lauri,

    yes, that's one my the photos. Please note that the boy at the right wears his Ballenstedt CT on the lower left sleeve, the boy one the left wears it on his right upper arm. So what was the regulation?

    Hello Daniel

    We find our photos from the same dealer I see. I do not know the regulation. Wearing the CT at the left arm seems the most encountered solution.

    Just a suggestion and thoughts:
    could it be possible that in the earliest stage, about 1934/1935 or so the cuffband or indication
    was worn upon the right upper arm, but this was changed later as normally cuffbands in the HY
    were worn upon the left lower arm?

    I have never seen a regulation about this and it is also possible that there is no unity in
    such cuffbands all. Maybe its "look" was decided by the specific institution? Look at the text upon
    the cuffband, which in most occasions is NOT as NPEA.
    When the specific and typical NPEA-triangles were introduced the use of the cuffbands not longer
    was needed, I think!

    Hello Garry,

    this photo is very nice. I like it !.Thanks for sharing.
    The shown photo, is a "Musikkorps" from Köthen in Anhalt and the building under construction behind the musicians displays the future school of NPEA ANHALT ( Ballenstedt I ) in 1937
    Indeed, before the school is transferred to Ballenstedt, the ( NA.PO.BI II ) of this region was based at Köthen as shown this postcard :
    - Köthen in Anhalt - Nationalpolitische Bildungsanstalt Ballenstedt II -
    This school was definitively given up in 1938 because it was considered too small by the Minister of Science, Education and National Culture (Reichserziehungsminister) Bernhard Rust.
    According to my information, the " Na Po Bi " did not exist any more in 1938.

    Best regards

    Eric

    A member on another forum has just posted pictures of an example of this cuff title, it looks good in my limited experience of such as I can only go by the construction and compare it to the example posted here, as these are not very often seen I think.

    Regards,
