I do not think this is Luftwaffe most likely civilian possibly postal or some other branch like that
LIFE'S LOSERS NEVER LEARN FROM THE ERROR OF THEIR WAYS.
It is from the Luftwaffe indeed. This is an armband as worn with the service dress worn by civilians employed as doormen and elevator operators.
The single strip of aluminum braid on the lower edge was worn by Pförtner [doormen].
(Hilfspförtner [assistant doormen] and Fahrstuhlführer (elevator operators) had no braid; Oberpförtner [senior doormen] had braid on the upper and lower edges.)
See here for the cap to go with it:
A new one for me as well.........
So its Luftwaffe indeed. I suppose the blue wool background denotes this. I wonder why the Adler isn't of the typical Luftwaffe style? Possibly due to it being worn by civilians only.
Herr Lovecraft strikes again!!
Ive never seen one like it.
Had that tidbit of info not emerged, I'd have dismissed it as not real.
A special armband for a Luftwaffe employed Doorman.....you have to hand it to those old Germans...they had Everything covered-and Then some!
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
Interesting, never would have thought of that. Seems like everyone received an armband to wear.
Thanks for all the input.
