    Hi James, Robert is correct.

    The SS cuff title for Regiment "Nordwest" is the usual RZM style.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Nordland was the SS Divison.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    This is a cuff title of the NS-Reichskriegerbund, the german veterans association. Established on March 6, 1938 for all members of NS-Reichskriegerbund. For normal members it is made of silvergrey viscose silk, for staff-members made of silver metal thread and for leaders made of golden metal thread.
    The correct name for it is "Landesgebietsarmbinde" and starting from April 1, 1939 "Gaukriegerverbandsarmbinde". The words "Landesgebiet" and "Gau" means same as "county" or "state".
    Following you wil find a complete list of these cuff titles:
    1. NORDOST
    2. NORD, renamed May 20, 1940 to "OSTSEE"
    3. NORDWEST
    4. OST , renamed February 1, 1940 to "SPREE"
    5. MITTE
    6. WEST
    7. SÜDOST
    8. ELBE
    9. FULDA-WERRA
    10. RHEIN
    11. MAIN
    12. SÜD (HOCHLAND)
    13. SÜDWEST
    14. DONAU, started June 10, 1938
    15. INN-DRAU, started June 10, 1938 ; renamed January 1, 1939 to "ALPENLAND"
    16. SUDETENLAND, started January 30, 1939
    16. WEICHSEL, started January 1, 1940
    17. WARTHE, started January 1, 1940
    18. OBERRHEIN, started January 1, 1941

    On March 3, 1943 Hitler liquidated the NS-Reichskriegerbund (Order V 3/43). So, all cuff titles are only a short, some a very short time in use.
