    The green one is from a border guard unit i think, the brown from a construction unit.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    The green shoulder boards were used by the Border Guards (Grenztruppen) and Police (VOPO). The rank is Oberleutnant, or roughly Senior Lieutenant. The brown shoulder boards are subdued and worn on the field (rain pattern) uniform. The top set of boards are for a Major and the bottom for Oberleutnant. Kevin
