    Hi Detlef, welcome to the forum by the way!

    The first one is East German, second is Fire service (I think?) and the final one is Luftwaffe.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade.
    Again thanks for quick reply. I had originally thought the 3rd board was Cavalry. The waffenfarbe is more a golden-yellow colour. What got me thinking was the actual colour of the board itself. Under natural light it appears to be a bluish-grey. Not that I question you, I'm just thowing it out there.
    Regards

    Hi Detlef, no worries! Asking questions is how we all learn!

    The strap is well used but the blue/grey colour shows up well where the missing pip once was. Plus another big pointer is the Luftwaffe pattern NCO's tresse. The Army used a diamond pattern tresse similar to that seen on the East German strap.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I've got a lot of questions. It's nice to have someplace to find answers.

    That first board(left top) is a subdued Uffz board for the East German army, to be used on the field uniforms.

    The second board is a WW2 era Volunteer Fire Police NCO. Nice one!

    The final board is a Luftwaffe(WW2) Feldwebel, assigned to a flight or paratrooper unit.

    Nice stuff!

    Hello,
    the rank for the last shoulderstrap is Oberfeldwebel, but a pip is missing...
    thanks
