I would like to show you my triangles from area 25. The West Pfalz-Saar triangles are very hard to find and today I got the HJ West Pfalz-Saar.

Really a wonderful set that illustrates how the Nationalsocialists repeatedly reorganized and renamed the German districts. While the region was still called Pfalz-Saar in 1935 it became Saarpfalz in 1937 and Westmark in 1940. History became touchable by these sleeve triangles .
Gebiet Westmark 36 (25), • Führer des HJ-Gebietes: Gbf. Walter Kröcher, until 4/1942 Obf. Otto Trautvetter, Gbf. Rolf Jakob Karbach, until 3/1943 Gbf. Walter Kröcher, then Obf. Wilhelm Keller • Führerin des BDM-Obergaues: Ogf. Else Storck, from 6/1942 Hmf./Gmf. Carola Limbach

Some few years ago I was lucky to get this triangle for a low price. Maybe just a "Westmark triangle " but the triangle shows some hidden facts: The Gau Westmark appears officially in 1940 but the triangle shows a fabrication style we know from 1933-1935. The triangle also has the golden "Traditionslitze" indicating that the wearer joined the HJ before 1933.

I would just add the earlier Pfalz-Saar period (1.3.1935-1.3.1936) and the first couple of years of the Saarpfalz period:

1935 until 15.7.1938: Friedrich Thimel (then to RJF Staff). Else Storck was also the Obergauführerin during this period.
