    Default Kriegsmarine Tassle?/ Streamer?

    I have had this in my collection for many years. Bought it from a walk-in visitor to an Allentown PA show in 70's. The woman had a brown paper bag with some maps, HJ knife and this thing. It measures ^7 ft. in length and the same width as a KM cap band streamer. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks once again...Frank

    Hey Frank. I don't really know much about this but it is Kaiserliche Marine and not Kriegsmarine. Sorry I don't have more for you.
    Good luck!

    It's not an official cap streamer. This is a commercially available item for conscript sailors nearing or having just completed the end of their active service. The (rhyming) text translates as:

    "We served together in joy and sorrow, but this doesn't last for eternity.
    Now we are sailing towards home, for finally the reserve has its peace.
    "

    The last part of the text is a variation on the well-known "Reserve hat Ruh", which is a proverbial slogan found on many items for discharged conscripts/reservists.
