    Default Heer specialty patches/research

    I am working on a comprehensive list of Heer specialty patches from the TR era. So far, I have identified 28. The foundation for the list comes from the Davis books. I know there were patches removed from service and new ones introduced over time. My list is alphabetical with the exception of the Kraftfahr series which I kept together under the letter K as a group. I want to stay with the TR era if possible. I have heard of one possible addition regarding anti-aircraft balloon handlers - rare and hard to find. I will put together a representative example of each patch to go along with the list. Variations are numerous so there will be no effort to account for every little nuance. For example, I plan to include only the Zitronengelb Waffenfarbe for Nachrichtenpersonal. They came in every service color but can be represented by one main color. My goal is to have an easy reference guide for the collector. If this has already been accomplished I would like to see the results. Input welcome. NH

    Hello Neil,
    Thanks for your time and work. I guess it will help out our members with these Heer speciality patches.
    I do own a few of them and can post them if this is of any interest...
    Thanks

    Thanks for your efforts Neil.

    I remember when I was first collecting in the mid '80's these were not so collectable and somewhat dismissed ( maybe not sexy enough? ) nowadays it is thankfully a different situation.

    Cheers, Dan

    The serpent insignia was never authorized for veterinary personnel by regulations, however it was found on price list's as late as November 1937 listed for "Vetrinär-Mannschaften". The insignia was abolished on 6 April 1935 (HV 35 No.162) and substituted with a serpent on the shoulder boards.

    Hi folks, Thanks for your input! Please do post what you have in your collection. Thanks for the feedback on the Veterinarian patch. I still consider it TR era - just not war time. No wonder it is so hard to find. Schirrmeister was in charge of repairs and associated shop for vehicles. I see the title is missing - will correct that problem. Next to it is Steurmann or boat pilot. I still think the correct number is 28 with some odd ball patches that did not see wide use.
    A work in progress. NH
