    I think that the first one is Unterwachtmeister in the ORPO? Any help appreciated. Thanks. I really want to determine whether there are wartime produced.

    Personally, I have a sneaking suspicion that these may be post war examples. The lower, blue backed example used to have two rank pips it appears. I would look at post war examples for comparison. That's just me though, I could well be wrong.

    Many thanks. I've compared with later ones but can't find a good match so anyone else have any ideas? Many thanks

    The two TR era boards I have found that are pretty close to these are Wasserluftschutzpolizei for the blue/silver one, in the rank of WLS-Hauptgruppenfuhrer considering the two missing pips.

    For the silver/brown with orange backing it looks like a Gendarmerie board in the rank of Wachtmeister.

    So they may possibly be TR? Thanks for looking and your help.
