    These are a mystery to me. I used to have one but sold it years ago, wish I kept hold of it now. Other ranks only wore them.

    I have no idea about the grades above. It would be good if someone can share some lanyard knowledge here?

    Here's a Luftwaffe Gefreiter wearing one:

    I have seen a few but i can't seem to distinguish the grades. Grade one is the lowest, twelve is the highest. There are also the two different shields. Lanyard one is from grade one through four. Lanyard two is from five to eight, but then there can be added acorns for achievements. However i have seen a grade three with one acorn and a grade five with no acorn..... and they look the same. Wreath, swords and eagle. Very confusing all together.
