Hi TK. Could i see the RZM-Tag?
Left to right. The first patch I do not recall as to what it is. Insignia for a police field cap, insignia for a DAF festival visor cap, RAD collar tab variant, unknown I can not make it out, HJ/BDM district triangle, SA Wehrmannschaft armband, SA sports shirt insignia from Gruppe Westfallen.
LIFE'S LOSERS NEVER LEARN FROM THE ERROR OF THEIR WAYS.
The circular patch in the left upper corner with the lightning bolt bundles is a Tätigkeitsabzeichen [trade badge] of the Luftwaffe [Air Force].
This one specifically was for Luftnachrichtenpersonal mit Funkprüfung B. [Air Signals Personnel with Wireless Operators' Qualification Test "B"-Level] (Signals NCOs had an additional outer cord piping.)
The collar patch in the right upper corner is actually not from the RAD, but from the Heer [Army].
It's from the 1940 series for Beamte auf Kriegsdauer [Officials for the duration of the war]; this pattern was for officials of the höherer Dienst [high-grade career group].

Thanks TK for the pictures.
I got some information about RZM-Tags. They called it "Erkennungsmarke". And the tags came in nine different collours, according the item they are used for.
Blue, black, purple, yellow, brown, wine red, pink, green, orange.
SA Armband cotton made = blue Tag
SA Armband flannel made = purple Tag
RZM-Tags started from 1. September 1934.
Thanks for the info. Anyone know what the Hitler pin is?
GAU WESTFALIA NORTH"
It's a donation badge for the 1933/1934 collection drive of the Winter Relief charity (see: Winterhilfswerk - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) in the Gau Westfalia North. The manufacturer's seat Lüdenscheid is also in Northrhine-Westfalia.
