Allgemine SS

Article about: I think this is a copy?

    Default Allgemine SS

    I'm not a collector of SS items so would be grateful if someone could give me some information about this item. I understand it is a Allgemine SS shoulder strap and guess that it's original (?), this came with some Dutch items so could have been worn by the Dutch SS. What I would like to know is did all the Allgemine units i.e. German/European wear the same straps. And what rank/s it is for.



    Thanks

    John

    Hi John, the strap is for the rank of SS Mann through to SS Hauptscharfuhrer. Worn from Oct 1934 onwards.

    Any label on the reverse?

    My knowledge of the Germanic SS outside of Germany is not good enough to give you the answer you require.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The NSKK shoulderstrap is similar to that. But this one looks like SS, but really this is not sewn in strap, and we will make opinion based on a good pictures. Cheers,

    Thanks guys. Here is the back which is a bit strange (to me).
    I couldn't seem to get the first pic bigger.

    Hi Dimas

    Thanks for that. There seems to be some reason why the thumbnail pictures can't be enlarged, if I can work out the reason I will post the pics again.

    Cheers

    John-
    The strap was worn by all other ranks in the S S on the black uniform. This would also include the S S V T, the Totenkopf Verband and the S D.
    The evolution of the Waffen S S introduced a pattern of shoulder strap worn on the gray uniform similar to those worn by other branches of the military and not in the style of those worn by the political formations.

    Bob.

    Many thanks for your informative reply. I'm surprised this type of shoulder strap was so extensively used having never seen one before, still I've learnt something.

    Cheers

    Hi Friedrich-Berthold, welcome to the forum!

    This one is the "slip on" type with loop. Have a look at post number 5.

    Cheers, Ade.
