    Default Deutsche Wehrmacht Armband

    Just wanted to share my DW armband for you all. Got it at a flea market from an estate cleaner who also had a CCC in Bronze mint but didn't have enough money saved up for it. Went back about 1 month later and it was gone. Just a little story about it.

    Its in good condition.

    These were worn by civilians assisting the German forces during 'End Game'

    You could be right! I think these bands were worn by civilians and public servants working around the Armed Forces as identification

    I always thought this was for non combatant service in the german army. Hopefully someone will let us know what it is for or confirm one of us.

    These had nothing to do with the Volksturm. As previously said, for civilian wear by individuals working for the German Armed Forces. These also could possibly be worn by RAD men working in the same capacity.

    Better than my friend who keeps buying fake soviet stuff and saying it is real. Then he comes to my house saying my German stuff is fake lol. Then I show him with a black light and he gets quiet....

    Hello,
    please do not believe that everything that glows under black light is fake as some originals that have been recently washed can glow also. Nice original Deutsche Wehrmacht armband.
    Thanks

    Well said. One must understand that the fakers now treat cloth so it does not glow. There is no substitute for years of hands on experience. The black light is only a tool that has limitations.
