Odal Rune Armband Help

Article about: Andreas never ceases to amaze me with his inexhaustible data bases of facts! He even found Pictures of it in actual Use! Little wonder that he's a lifetime member! Great job of fact finding!

    Good grief! I thought it was a fantasy piece also. The construction looked good but I was one track minded about it and only thinking German. I gotta get rid of my tunnel vision. H.P. is the bomb, he's a genius. Neat armband Eric you little stinker. I bet you've had to look at alot of glass with your lovely wife picking this stuff out.

    I can't tell whether this one is original or not, but it is actualy not German, but French. This is a brassard for the Rassemblement National Populaire (R.N.P.), a French collaborationist party founded by Marcel Déat in February 1941.

    It is actually upside down, by the way: This is not supposed to be an Odal-Rune, but a stylized letter "Gamma".

    (Although the similiarity to an inverted Odal-Rune was probably quite deliberate.)

    For examples of the symbol in use (including one showing the brassard), please see:

    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

    Thanks for the kind words, guys, but you really have to thank the late David Littlejohn.
    I only vaguely remembered that the thing was something French, so I checked the France chapter in Littlejohn's "Foreign Legions of the Third Reich" and there it was. After that, finding the images on the net was easy.
    Take away my reference library and my internet connetion and I'm pretty much lost...
