    Default Collar Tabs with cypher

    Dear Collectors,

    I've a question about the collar Tabs of the SS VT.

    When was the order given to remove the numbers of the Standarten from the collar Tabs?

    Thank you

    Regards Martin

    Hi Martin, 1940 if I recall correctly.

    Cheers, Ade.

    To be precise:

    Verordnungsblatt der Waffen-SS 15.8.1940. Ziff Nr.155

    Care of good old Mollo Vol 3.

    Just to add a little additional information to Adrian's post. The numbers and symbols were ordered removed a little earlier than August in a Himmler order of May 10, 1940.
    The Verordnungsblatt der Waffen-SS 15.8.1940. Ziff Nr.155 just refers to removal of the piping around the collar.

    Here's the full translation:

    Excerpt of the RFSS order of 10 May 40:

    "All other members of the Waffen-SS wear on their right patch the Sigrunen without any additions.
    Officers ranked
    Standartenführer or higher wear the rank badges on both sides.

    8.) The entire embroidery of all insignia worn on the field uniform is in matte silver grey for all SS members, on the field grey officers' tunic it is in aluminum.

    9.) For the duration of the war, the cross-strap is not worn with the field grey uniform by the members of the
    Waffen-SS.

    10.) Otherwise, the regulations in my order of 12/12/1939 apply
    ."


    W-SS Verordnungsblatt of 15 Aug. 1940:

    "155. Collar- and patch cord piping.
    The
    Reichsführer-SS has ordered that collar- and patch cord piping are discontinued for the duration of the war on the field grey blouse and greatcoat of NCOs and men."
