    Default Deutsche Wehrmacht armbands

    Here are my newest peices.

    A nice DW armband with a weimar stamp and 2 others that were worn post war by veterans who had badges on them, that were later removed, you can see the "ghosts" of them. I find them very interesting.

    Also shown is Volksturm arm band

    they were worn during the by civilian memebrs working for the Wehrmacht. I believe the two that had badges on them my have been vet bring backs and had various badges put on them that they had collected.

    its almost like "spot the badge" i think I can ID SS, Luft, Polizei,a cap badge and political eagles and maybe a party pin!

    I agree with the Polizei and the political eagles. The rest i can't by these photos. I have purchased one DW armband recently. I can't wait to get it.

    Hi,
    nice armbands and shows they are original to, I thknk they are bringbacks and whoever has kept german badges on them. When i was a kid the old soldiers would put lots of cap badges on there belts and wear them like that, i wouldnt have thought they were worn by people who worked for the wehrmacht, as the swastika was band then.

    Yeh I agree, I dont think German vets would have had these post war......Is it usual to have the early style eagle stamp on these though?

    Thanks pammy. Yeh basically civilians/public servants working for the military wore them. I suppose as a means of identification as they wandered around bases etc
