    looks like a parachute regiment patch,maybe air borne qualified?,,in keeping with wwII waffenfarbe,,i would think the tab and piping on the uniform would be a golden yellow,,,but maybe not?!

    Tom, a nice grey service jacket for a "Fallshirmjager Shutze" (Enlited man rank,Airborne troops) of "LuftlanderBrigade 26 Saarland" (Based at Saarlouis). In the Bundeswehr "Green" Waffenfarbe was for all types infantry. (Mountain Troops/Jager/PzGrenadiers/Paratroops etc). You could do with finding these badges for the jacket, I show a Bundeswehr silver grade parachute qualification badge in bullion (there is a metal version) and a basic U.S. para qualification badge (Bundeswehr soldiers could wear upto 2 foreign qualification badges) Prost ! Steve.

    Tom, the one in the middle is suitable for your jacket, looks to be an embroidered "Gold" grade, the bottom one is either Luftwaffe or Marine, the top one is not German, but in my opinion Dutch. The German Para wing must be approx 10cm in length.
    Prost ! Steve.
