Hate to rehash an old thread..but another member posted a link to this page Armband Identification Gallery where they are calling the Armband an NSAO
NSDAP Wounded Factory Workers Organization
EDIT just noticed,thats my actual photo on that page...so the 'title' of the armband must be from here
Like the Armband. First I have seen.
A NSAO pin I have on my site if anyone wants to reference this link: NSAO Labor Organization
The Nationalsozialistischer Reichsver-band der deutschen Arbeitsopfer (Nationalsocialist Reich Association of German Victims of Industrial Accidents). Assuming organization was embedded in the DAF (Deutsche Arbeitsfront or German Labor Front). I have had a hard time finding much information about the NSAO in the Organisationsbuch der NSDAP, the official "Nazi bible" which contains the entire structure of the Nazi regime.
Ok to chuck the proverbial spanner in the works, a friend has found a photo of another one of these with a different stamp
Undoubtedly a property stamp from a different office that issued this piece.
LIFE'S LOSERS NEVER LEARN FROM THE ERROR OF THEIR WAYS.
Wim you are on the money..The owner of the Armband tells me that he has found a pin exactly the same as the Armband and its for the DAFJ (DAF Jugend) An organization started by Robert Ley for young workers, that was joined into the HJ in October 33..theres a little info in this book https://books.google.com.au/books?id...20nazi&f=false
