    Default guidance appreciated on Heer medical shoulder boards (and collar tabs)

    i believe the shoulder boards were issued to an Oberleutnant (highest Lieutenant officer rank) due to the the pips (without them to a Lieutenant =Assistenzarzt)?
    to me they look to have they been removed from a tunic or are somewhat worn?
    the collar tabs seem un-used, i bought them separately to have together with another pair of medical boards in better shape : )
    i showed the tabs to perhaps get an response to my thought they instead are for transportation?
    please let me know if i am way off the track with my assumptions : )
    best wishes,
    Stig

    The term Oberleutnant was not used for medical officers; the correct rank designation here is Oberarzt.

    Rank designations for army phyisicians were:

    Unterarzt [equivalent to Oberfähnrich]
    Assistenzarzt [equivalent to Leutnant]
    Oberarzt [equivalent to Oberleutnant]
    Stabsarzt [equivalent to Hauptmann]
    Oberstabsarzt [equivalent to Major]
    Oberfeldarzt [equivalent to Oberstleutnant]
    Oberstarzt [equivalent to Oberst]
    Generalarzt [equivalent to Generalmajor]
    Generalstabsarzt [equivalent to Generalleutnant]
    Generaloberstabsarzt [equivalent to General]

    (Final system, used after 1934. The ranks from Stabsarzt through Generaloberstabsarzt are still used today, by the way.)

    To me, it looks like the cornflower blue branch color for the medical service. Supply/transportation had light blue.

    (Of course, colors in a digitally-photographed image displayed on a computer screen can appear quite different from what they look like in reality.)

    Hello,
    The blue Waffenfarbe on the Litzen is slightly lighter than what i've seen before for Sanitäts but i do believe that it's still for this branch of service.
    Thanks
