    This is not my area of expertise, but as far as I know, rings with unit/branch-related symbols were normally commercially manufactured or custom-made and bought by the soldiers who wore them. (These are, of course, not to be confused with items such as the SS Honor Ring!)

    Whether rings were also used by certain units as a sort of unoffical, internal award/sign of recognition, I really do not know. Perhaps other members are more knowledgable in this field.



    I can, however, offer a tentative ID on the symbol on this man's ring: I could be mistaken, but it really looks a lot like the symbol of the Labor Service organization Arbeitsdank to me:

    http://www.axishistory.com/fileadmin...eits-dank2.jpg

    [The Arbeitsdank (roughly "Labor Thanks") was set up by the RAD's forerunner, the FAD/NSAD, in November 1933 as a welfare body acting as a form of health insurance for all Labor Service members who had sustained injuries or illness related to their work. It also assisted poorer Labor Service members with acquiring further education or job skills in order to gain employment after leaving the service. All members of the FAD/NSAD and the later RAD were recquired to belong and financially contribute to this organization.]

    HPL, There is a VERY good chance that the ring is indeed depicting the Arbeitsdank symbol. This is interesting to me and I had never heard of this before now. I could make a book of all the things I have learned from you over the past Year!! haha. Thats crazy that they were made to contribute monetarily to the organization! But I guess that was a good thing since it is a nice organisation/service. So it is safe to say that this Panzermann was in the FAD or RAD, correct? Thank you as always for the info/link and response!


    Chris (Donkihotis), You SCORED getting that album!! VERY nice. I absolutely love all the camo/zelts in wear! There are some great shots in that album. what an awesome find right there. Appreciate you taking the time to post those!

    Thanks Bill, indeed there are some awesome pics in that album. Too bad most of them are printed on gloss paper and i can't take nice photos of them as i cannot get rid of the reflections. Before i saw those pics i had no idea that zeltbahns were also used for wear. I thought that they were only for building tents.
    Very nice photos you have posted here Bill. You must be spending a lot of money to get such great pics.

    Yeah, Bill is our official "resident Photo collector!" LOL! But seriously, he's the man when it comes to great ww2 photos...I'm full of jealousy , contempt and envy. I'm expecting some good shots in the mail any day now and i'll post when they arrive.One is of a few soldats on one knee w/ their German shepards w/ packs on them. I think this link should take you to it but I'll scan it when it comes anywho. file:///C:/Users/Public/Pictures/German%20soldats%20and%20dogs.htm

    Thanks Chris, but like I said before, I spend alot of time searching for good deals too. One key is to find sellers who are "low key" and not many people know about. Ebay is still a great place to find original photos if u know who to buy from. I very seldomly buy from the more popular sellers on there because there are too many people, which drives the prices way too high.
    I know what ya mean about the reflections too! Before I got this scanner I used to deal with that problem as well!

    Dean, I couldnt get the link to work....but I really want to see the Shepherds pic! Thanks for the kind words too man! Try to remember to scan yours when they come in! thanks

    Need some help or input on this one! I believe them to be Luftschutz men. However, the insignia reminds me of the "Lufthansa" (civilian) wings too. Also would like to know what the armelbands would read? Thanks for ANY help!!

    I got this with a Polizei photo, but I didnt think they were related. But maybe LuftschutzPolizei? (looks like the man on left might have a Treffen badge?)
