Article about: Hi folks, Newly acquired Heer specialist patches - Richtkanonier and Nachrichtenmechaniker. 35 and 25 US dollars. Both are hard to find but I located them at the Allentown Forks of the Delaw

    Jerry, The Nachrichtenmechaniker patch is Feldgrau. To my knowledge, you may encounter these patches in Dark blue/green, Feldgrau and Tropische versions. The tropical versions are brown. I only have on tropical example - Schirrmeister. NH
    Greetings All,

    Jerry has posted an example of all of the tropical specialty patches that were made. There were only 6 made. They were made in wool and cotton.

    The panzer nachrichtenmechaniker was only produced in field grey. It is a post 1940 manufactured patch.

    Hallo Neil,

    My bad, I was referring to the nachrichtenmechaniker patch. I don't know why I put panzer in front of it.!

    Ha! You must like Panzers Fred! The Signals Mechanic (Nachrichtenmechaniker) patch I posted is probably post 1940 as you pointed out. An earlier version would have had a dark blue/green backing. The Nach.Mech patch was produced with the generic yellow/gold thread. Only the signal "Blitz" patches were made with unit colors as far as I know and indeed Panzer would be pink. NH

    hello Neil,

    There shouldn't be an earlier version of the nachrichtenmechaniker patch because it came out in May of 1944. There could possibly be a private purchase patch made on dark green but I doubt if there ever was an issue patch made.

    Actually I love Color, not just pink, in Heer insignia!! I have collected heer insignia for a few years now. Jerry B directed me here and said that this was a good forum. Signal Blitzes are a weakness of mine!!

    Fred, I have a bunch of Signal patches and continue to collect them. I think it would be great if those of us on the forum who collect these patches could make up a definitive list. The info in books and on web sites is spotty. I have a loose leaf book with acid free plastic sheets with pockets for organizing my specialty patches. In each pocket I have made a card with the name of the patch on it. My hope is to complete the collection and then share it with the group. NH

    Neil,

    I just came back from the SOS and have been picking up signal blitzes this last year. Here is a picture of what I have at the moment. The very last one is an orange blitz on dark green!!

    I do but since I didn't have one I kept it. Here is a shot of my infantry blitzes.
