    Genuine wool armband with a most interesting cufftitle attached indicating a leadership position at a political training camp.

    Very rare armband, but not as for "leadership position at a political training camp", as said in post 2.

    Persons as the Oberlagerführer, Lagerführer etc. from the Führungspersonal were active at camps were
    (foreign) workers were housed
    , due to the Arbeitseinsatz in so-called Gemeinschaftslager during the war.

    This was arranged and assigned to the Deutsche Arbeitsfront on behalf of the Amt für Arbeitseinsatz der DAF.
    In-depth descriptions about what was to be done one can find in "Dienstanweisung für Lagerführer der
    Deutschen Arbeitsfront
    ", from 1941 and/or 1943. The functions were described in these regulations!

    It is my opinion the golden yellow armband was worn with the political leaders uniform, the black version with the
    Werkschar-uniform (as these uniforms were described: Uniform der Politischen Leiter or when available the "bisherigen
    blaue Werkscharuniform"
    ). I rate the shown armband as 1941/1942.

    Terrific information - thank you Mr. Saris.

    The fact that I can benefit from such knowledge and subject expertise constitutes one of the many reasons why this Board is a spectacular resourse - it is absolutely indispensible!
