rob is that red band with the single rune on it hj? first i have ever seen one like it was it costly? ~ no cheek intended btw!
Hey! These are considered to be used by the DJ (German Youth) used by kids before they made it to the HJ....these armbands are pretty rare and were only used early on. Here are some pics. This is the one you were asking about right?
Just realized the two period pics I posted didn't come up....their size isn't compatible??? I will try and re-size them and post them. They are cool period pics of that armband in wear.
Here's another armband to hold you....This is my three piece NSDAP....wool back not cotton.
Here's my DRK that also hasn't been framed yet.
Last one for now....Sorry for some of the "yellowish" pics....lighting was a bit off and camera was hit and miss.
This is an SA reserve armband.
Here's an interesting one....These were used for funerals - but most times the black stripe was only placed on top of a reg. armband. This one is stitched. Looks and smells right though. Stitching is also as it should be. Maybe this belonged to someone in the party that had multiple funerals to attend.....like that might be part of his job or something....I'm not sure but I do like this one. If only it could talk - it could explain it.
One more period pic....
