    yes, i did go by the "name" used on Collectors Guild. What is the proper name then ?
    He has taken that name out of the Angolia book, whereas these have been made before 1933 so I dont really know why he has classified them for started to be made that year. For those that dont know for example the M36 tunic started or was made in t 1936, the M42 in 1942 etc. The belts have the same classification. I think this pattern of buckle has been around since 1912 so I dont really know why it has been named the 1933 pattern?

    How old exactly the buckles were I have not found yet, but anyway since the Weimar-period.
    1933 is totally nonsense.

    In the DRK uniform-regulation from June 15, 1928 (published in the Amtliches Nachrichtenblatt
    des deutschen Rote Kreuzes)
    it was mentioned. Worn then was a matt gilded buckle with the cross,
    having the form "Genfer Kreuz". Since the early thirties the buckle was from German silver (neu-
    silber). It was described as "für Sanitäter"!

    This buckle was officially not worn at all untill 1938, as since January 1935 anyway a double-claw
    was described in the regulations (die neue Diensttracht für das männliche Personal der freiwilligen
    Krankenpflege
    , which was the DRK). With all forms for the uniform this double-claw was worn.
    "Wir sollen auch unser Leben für die Brüder lassen" (1.Joh.3.16):
    zum Gedächtnis Wilhelm Schenk. Er starb fürs Vaterland am 13. Juni 1916
