    Default Rad traditions cap insignia

    Sometime late this summer I plan to post a very factual and candid thread concerning the "Rad Traditions" insignia..
    Posting examples of original badges and the history behind them... I may close a certain thread as I feel posting pictures without explanation may have been a bit hasty and not very useful to fellow members.. I have a lot of ground to cover in order to be a better asset to WRF members... I hope many or some will participate as time allows... Thanks in advance...G

    Here I give a helping hand from official RAD-orders.

    Surveys with RAD-orders were published in some years since the later 1930's.
    First I show two pages with indications and dates from August 31, 1939.
    Note the order-number change from Arbeitsgau I and information about the
    changing for the word Ochsenkopf into Büffelkopf.
    Information is given for Arbeitsgau XXI - Niederrhein. The badge already was
    withdrawn and no longer allowed to be purchased.

    In 1941 a new survey was published January 31, 1941. Compare the both
    surveys for your convenience.

    As mentioned before: All badges are in-depth covered in volume 5 for the series
    "Headgear of Hitler's Germany" pages 386 through 390 with general information.
    Pages 391 through 442 with the official forms. Further some pages which may have
    been un-official forms. Badges are shown in color (front and reverse) and from most at
    least one photo of it in wearing.

    Friends enjoy!!

    Gwar: when you start with your plan about traditions RAD stuff, I will
    so now and then jump in with (possible) information and with variations
    .......photographs where the badges are being worn. I hope you don't
    mind!!
