    West German?

    Post by barriefield-brian on Tue Feb 21, 2017 1:48 pm

    Bought a lot of badges and these came with them. Are they West or East German? The stripes look American to me. Cheers Brian

    Brian, everything except for the rank chevron looks West German to me. At work with no access to my reference material. Can check tonight when I get home. The rank chevron is American.

    Hi Brian,

    For private knowledge and general information.  Here goes.  From top to bottom, left to right:

        1)  Army marksman lanyards in gold and silver (missing third level Bronze)
        2)  Unknown badge (as it's voided, it might be a cap badge)
        3)  another unknown badge (by the design, might be a state or city fire service)
        4)  Air Force trade qual of some type
        5)  standard national flag
        6)  Military District South Command
        7)  2nd German Corps HQ and troops
        8)  Navy para qual class III (bronze) for winter dress
        9)  Army Aviation collar badge
      10)  US Army Specialist rank
      11)  Military District 6 Command
      12)  Army Aviation cloth collar tab
      13)  Army Quartermasters cloth collar tab
      14)  10th Armoured Division
      15)  Colonel rank epaulette, and
      16)  Army Aviation cuff title ("Geschwader"=Squadron Molders).

    All West German except for #10.  #'s 2 and 3 are probably W. German.  Hope this helps.

    Ian

    Thank you very much for the Ids. Will put masking tape on the back and write them down so not forgotten. Cheers Brian
