Not convinced, however by coincidence found both names on a USA genealogy website. The items both look unworn a not of great age. There is nothing on either tag to imply the owners were Chaplains or religion related.

Here is another example. There were quite a few of these for civilians.
Probably a good idea as a civilian if there was fear of being bombed to bits in order to identify a body.
Maybe 'semi-military' staff like civilian helpers perhaps?
Thanks all for yout time and help

I know they were used for "relocated" persons and normal civilian workers. The one I have came from Russia close to Stalingrad and was picked up by a detector. I am not sure why citizens would be out in the occupied areas or who they were exactly but they must have been doing some job for the administration or the army.
