    The original school name "Flieger Technische Vorschule" was changed during the war to "Technische Vorschule der Luftwaffe".

    The rhomboid badge with the name of the school was worn on the lover left sleeve of the uniform jacket. It replaced an earlier sleeveband with the school name.

    The round badge (with a number, 1 to 4) is a "Jahrgangsabzeichen" showing the year of apprenticeship. The badge was worn on the upper left sleeve of the working jacket/coverall.

    Thanks for the replies gents. and for showing all the different patches, really interesting stuff. Would the Bann 83 Kassel shoulder straps be worn with the Kassel cufftitle? Or did the students use the Flakhelfer type straps?

    The straps were black with blue piping and blue Bannnumer.

    Thanks Henrik. Very sharp looking uniforms the kids look like they should be pilots. Great photos.

    These boys/young men considered themselves as an elite.

    Karl Zmugg (photos in post #14) became a "Fluzeug-Motoren-Schlosser" and worked for fighter squadrons 77 and 27. He survived the war.

    DID all these have school insignia if so some must be very rare. Seems there are several out there and that is it.

    I don't know if they were produced for all the schools.

    According to regulations, the cufftittle/armband was a part of the uniform. Some time during the war, the cufftitle was replaced by the arm diamond.

    In my latest photalbum from a Fl. Tech. school, there is only one photo with cufftitles, and that is on brown HJ shirts.

    I think the number of students at some of the schools were smaller than other, and therefore the school insignia are rare or no longer existing.
