    These female RadwJ are up for purchase.. I, based on research and former threads believe these are genuine and would like a second opinion..
    III may be linked to Mecklenburg, Hanna Trendtel and V may be attributed to Dr. Hilde Lemke.. Or Olga Wolter..
    These most likely are "Honor Names"... The construction and material seems period correct IMO.
    I hope that some others can corroborate the authenticity or add any information if possible... G

    RAD III was definitely Mecklenberg as the link below proves.

    The names mentioned are serving women, not honor-names. I have not ever seen
    a honor-name mentioned in the "Verordnungblatt für den Reichsarbeitsdienst"
    for a female unit.
    I have not ever seen either an official list with female units, existing within a specific
    district and have no time to make one, in spite of the fact I have a lot of information
    at hand.

    In fall 1938 III was "Nordmark", V was "Schlesien". The roman number means
    "Bezirk".
    It would be extremly difficult, but above all time-consuming, to re-construct a complete
    list with unit-numbers. See a page with the given information. First what should be done
    is to figure out the codes-numbers:
