    Default Help with armband

    I have a chance to get a arm band, but have no clue as to where it is from..
    It is a party arm band, and moth bitten, but has a solid band of brown cloth as boarders..
    This was found as a friend of mine was going through his mothers house,
    and his father ws in WWii and brought home by him.. This came back along
    with a WSS combat tunic (officers), visor hat, M43, SS officers belt, and lugar
    and holster.. For now only thing up for grabs is the armband..
    I had Mr.Colemn look at this and he gave the thumbs up as "Period original but not something I have ever seen"..
    The pics are crappy, as they were taken by a phone..
    Thank you in advance

    I agree with Bob as it does look period made.
    It could be a SA reservist, that the environment has affected in some way.
    Better pics would help.

    I would agree with Eric's comment re the enviroment possibly effecting the colour of the stripes.

    So either SA reserve in grey or a very faded black for the SS.

    Cheers, Ade.
