    Default Armebzeichen - help please!

    Hello all, these just arrived and I'm not sure if they are Kriegsmarine or Heer or what? I checked on Wiki and the Kriegsmarine table showed the Matrosenobergefreiter (Seaman) as having blue background, and the Heer table for the Obergefreiter shows green background. Mine has a black background, what does this mean please?

    Hi Troy, they are Kriegsmarine. Tresse and colour can only be Kriegsmarine.

    Dark Navy Blue can look almost black.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Indeed it looks black on my monitor too. Is it supposed to be SS?

    It does have that marking on one of them, but I didn't take much notice of it, and they are the darkest blue I've ever seen Did the SS use these?

    The short and long answer is No.

    Tresse is the wrong colour and pattern.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Since they are not SS, the marking on the back is there to deceive.
    The thing is are the patches original KM with fake SS marking or are they fake completely?

    There is a slight chance the SS might be a makers stamp.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks again Ade, and on another note, I've left a link over at uboot.net for the U-Kreuzer Deutschland thread. Hopefully we may see some more input into Dwights labour of love.
