    Default Diplomatic Corps Armband

    Hey! Just received this from one of our esteemed members, odessa1, who runs the I TAKE PAY PAL ROMMEL-LEBT.COM web site.
    These are exactly like the yellow state service armbands - but these are white instead of yellow. I didn't have this one in my collection and I didn't have to break the bank for it either!
    Happy to have it added to the collection. Arrived today! The hunt is now on to find some period pics......

    Cheers!

    I'm not quite sure....I've heard these were used by the diplomatic corps and that the yellow ones were used for state service personel. Here's my yellow example to compare with the one shown above....

    Cheers!

    Hi Rob, it is a nice armband but I would be interested to know where the possible ID came from? As far as I know, these are simply a variation on the State Employees armband.

    Cheers, Ade.

    hi guys here this if any good relates to the yellow armband!

    This original German Armband is well marked and in excellent condition. I have provided you with numerous pictures and close-ups so that you can assess it for yourself.Constructed from a yellow rayon band with reinforced edges. The design features a National eagle with outstretched wings machine embroidered (Bevo like) in black rayon thread.

    The Army Mobilization Order of 12.3.1937 introduced a variety of civilian armbands (Nicht-Wehrmachtangehörige Ärmelbinde) that identified non-military personnel performing specific duties or functions for the Armed Forces. As the war progressed additional armbands became necessary as a means to identify the growing number of non-uniformed, and often non-German civilian personnel serving in a military capacity with all branches of the armed forces. As a result, a large selection of identifying armbands were introduced. This particular armband was designed for combatants who were not members of the Armed Forces.
