    Hi All, Some Parachute troops badges. There are so many variations of these badges to include backing or field, wing, centre device designs and colours etc., that it would take far too long to describe each style in depth. All conform to the "three grade" seniority norm with Bronze, Silver and Gold grades. The only exception to this rule appears to be the black subdued pattern which appears to be a generic wing. Happy collecting and viewing. Any constructive comment are welcome especially where I have made an error.
    Cheers Michael R

    PS the non parachute badges are used as fillers.

    Hi, Some BW Flight Wings for view. Hope that they are of interest. Once again, there is such a range and variety of colours etc that it would take for ever to describe each one or each pattern individually so suffice it to say, they are awarded in three basic grades Bronze Silver and Gold.
    Cheers MR

    The insignia includes, pre 1962 apex pointed shoulder rank epaulettes for both enlisted and officer personel and a range of BW H, M, and Luftwaffe achievement qualification badges in metal. All follow the standard BW system of grading Bronze, Silver and gold. Note the SNCO epaulettes do not have tress to the edges. The top three epaulettes ar current BW Heer/Luftwaffe Mess Dress for officers.

    Hi All, A breakdown of Bundeswehr Branch and Trade attainment bars. Up to two of these bars may be worn together on the right breast of the various patterns of uniform. Each bar follows the established system of colour codification being Bronze (On completion of 6 months within the branch subsequent to qualification), Silver (On completion of 5 years within the branch subsequent to qualification) and Gold (On completion of 10 years within the branch subsequent to qualification). A number of these bars are applicable to all three Services within the Bundeswehr, some only to a singe and some to dual Services. Thus, in addition to the metal bars, a relatively huge number of cloth patterns exist. The field or backing colour can be a positive indication of the Service to whom the badge belongs but not always. Additionally a wide variety in quality also exists ranging from work uniform to Mess Dress and parade etc. To further complicate the issue, over to evolution of these bars, a large number of patterns have been intruduced and the colours of the actual uniforms amended. Without actually counting the variations, my guess is that there are well over a 1000 and possibly a lot more to collect. If like me, you are daft enough to start collecting these bars you will need a lot of money, space and time. So if you do, happy hunting!!

    Regards MR

    PS, I will break the bars down into three groups for display purposes. Group 1:
