    It would be quite difficult to find out a name to this tunic.

    With the first listed names for Oberarbeitsführer, as stated
    and confirmed in the RAD Verordnungsblatt from December
    18, 1935
    about 150 names for this rank were published.
    No specific districts or offices were mentioned, as was done with
    the confirming of many other ranks and functions.

    For example for Oberstfeldmeister, Oberfeldmeister or Feldmeister it was specifically stated
    if he did belong to an Arbeitsdienstgruppe, Arbeitsdienstabteilung or whatever!
    I have listed hundreds and hundreds of names!!! The list from March 1936 did include
    over 2,300 names, just for the rank of Feldmeister.
