    Don't know a thing about RAD but that must be a very nice one. Not normally seen in bullion embroidery. Maybe the RAD equivalent of officers insignia.
    Nice looking.

    Aluminum sleeve spades were worn by the RAD-Führer [lit. "RAD leaders", i.e. the RAD's officer equivalents].

    A sleeve spade with a red capital "M" was worn by personnel of the RAD's Hauptmeldeämter and Meldeämter [Main Recruiting Offices and Recruiting Offices].

    (Angolia nonsensically misspells and mistranslates these terms as "Hauptmeldebeämter" and "Meldebeämter", which he claims to mean "Main Communications Department" and "Communications personnel", respectively.)

    By the way: Isn't this patch woven in metallic thread rather than bullion embroidered?

    Great patch G, and fantastic information from HPL2008. Here is my one and only, bought to match the name/group inside a belt for a RAD buckle
