    Default GFP Shoulder Straps

    Here is a rare strap that doesn't turn up too often.

    The GFP straps used the same light blue (Hellblau) Nebenfarbe as the Heeresjustizbeamte. The GFP was unique though in using a narrow blue cord between the aluminium braids whereas the Justizbeamte used the normal green cord that all other admin branches used.
    The whole subject of GFP straps can be rather complicated as any soldiers from any branch on attachment to the GFP was entitled to use GFP cyphers on their straps during the attachment. So you can legitimately find a Justizbeamte strap with GFP cyphers, or an infantry, or artillery or indeed any other strap with GFP cyphers but these would simply be attached personnel. Genuine full time career Army GFP officials would wear the special straps with the unique narrow blue cord as well as the Hellblau Nebenfarbe.

    For some reason the Luftwaffe went their own way, and used a wine red Nebenfarbe and gilt rather than silver GFP cyphers.

    Very nice. Rank is Feldpolizeiobersekretär (later re-designated Feldpolizeiinspektor) for the Heer board and Feldpolizeidirektor for the Luftwaffe board.
