    Thank you Ade. Never cease to amaze me with your knowledge.
    Would this have been worn on the front or side of cap?

    Hi Tom, worn on the side of the cap.

    This badge was annouced in Uniform-Markt trade magazine in 1943.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Sorry to chime in so late, But I believe the "Robin Hood" cap posted has an Edelweiss Rad Arbietsgau Alpenland, Oberdonau, Badge.. The badge in question that started this particular thread is a Niedersachsen Ost Gau XVIII badge...Just my two cents and Merry Christmas...Gwar

    Illustrations of the traditional cap badges of the RAD can be found on the German Wikipedia article on the RAD:

    Reichsarbeitsdienst

    For those who want to learn more, the subject is covered in great detail in vol. 5 of Wim Saris' outstanding Headgear of Hitler's Germany series of books.
