What makes you think that this is possibly an engineer, technical sergeant? Personally, I dont see anything that gives any clues as to what branch of service OR rank on the photos as supplied on here.
Sorry mate, the bottom line is, in order to help out, we need more and better photos than these are.
Jimpy: My apologies, I will secure more detailed images, etc. so as to offer a more complete profile. I must have been on vacation too long and my mind must still be there and not here. Regards
Looks fine so far. These appear to be early Feldbluse style shoulder straps, which are unpiped. But more pics will confirm.
Just allow me to add for the sake of accuracy that either way the rank is not Unterfeldwebel. It's either Feldwebel or (if there is a second pip on the shoulder boards) Oberfeldwebel.
(Unterfeldwebel had just the three-sided Tresse.)
Thank you. By your observations and comments, I'm am learning something useful every day. Regards. Larry
