The buckle is a nice original and to me so id the belt, the writing on it says German Red Cross (Bereitschaft) Willingness and Aachen stadt is the town. Very nice set
Nice set. Not sure what the H is but the frog on most DRK sidearms have the same H.
Bereitschaft was (and is) the designation for a local-level volunteer unit of the German Red Cross.
by Ben Evans
The lower-case "m" next to the term identifies a male (männlich) unit; female units had a "w" (weiblich). (Back then, men and women served in separate Red Cross units.)
In this context, Bereitschaft does not mean "willingness"; an approximate translation is "readiness unit".
Thank you for the German lesson, I was taking it from a German translator
