    Default High Ranking RAD Officer's Tunic

    I wanted to show a new RAD tunic that I just picked up out of an old collection. The tunic is nice and private tailored out of gaberdine wool. There are several period alterations to the tunic that adds to the character. Of note is a single non-regulation belt ramp sewn in on the left side of the tunic. The only thing I can think of is maybe it was where the individual wore a pistol or dagger and he needed the extra support. I have seen this done on Heer Officer's tunics before. It also has the closed neck which mirrors the military style uniform as well. Look at the pointed collar! The NSDAP ribbon is original to the tunic. The shield is for a staff position out of Munich. This is the highest ranking RAD uniform I have ever encountered. I believe the insignia to be post '41 and for the rank of Oberarbeitsführer. I wanted to know if anyone would have any information on who the individual may have been. The rank is high enough to possible determine the original owner. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Thanks guys. You really don't see many high ranking RAD tunics, especially with the closed war time collar.

    If anyone would know of a list, it would be Wilhelm Saris. Try contacting him.

    I realize that this is a old thread....Seems to be a Senior Officer ( Hohere Fuhrer )
    or Arbeitsfuhrer / Oberarbeitsfuhrer. The sleeve shield is XXX denoting Arbeitsgau Bayern-Hochland.

    never got the email (or I can't remember). I must have laying around such list,
    but out-of-heart I do not know if I also do have all the in-between changes.
