    Thanks for making this a sticky, colleagues. Thanks to David Delich for his civic minded aid to us all.

    We included elsewhere the Jenkins' material with further varieties of these badges.
    damit, basta.

    The order about the introduction for the SA and SS chevron.
    For the SA the chevron disappeared when the long servce stripes were introduced,
    announced October 15, 1934 (published Verordnungsblatt der Obersten SA-
    Führung
    nr. 37, page 2).
    The old SA chevron was then worn by the NSKK until a new version came into
    being. For the SS the wearing remained.

    My extensive articles about the SA-chevron were published in 1995 for the German
    "Militaria"-magazine in April, respectively May-June and in the US-magazine
    "Military Advisor" nr.4 from fall 1995. Lots of information and many, many
    photographs were included in the articles.

ID:	761990Thank you, very much, as ever for your wonderful scholarship and the sharing of your superb primary sources.

    And the order notes that the SS badge is silver versus alu, as seen here.
    damit, basta.

    For the benefit of the non-German speaking members, let me add the translation of this OSAF order:


    "Munich, 3rd February 1934

    Order

    SA officers and -men who had joined the SA during the period from 1st Jan. 1923 to 31st Dec. 1932 and who furthermore have been with the SA uninterruptedly since at least 1st Jan. 1933 wear on their right upper arm a chevron of 1-centimeter-wide gold braid interwoven with red. (The braid for SS officers and -men is of the same style, but silver interwoven with black.)

    All those SA officers and -men who had first joined the SA after 31st Dec. 32 as well as SA candidates do not receive this badge.

    The chevron is to be worn on the brownshirt, service tunic and greatcoat. The chevron's open side faces upwards.

    Authorization for wearing this chevron is to be noted in the membership book by the immedate superior officer.

    So as to assure a uniform appearance and appropriate quality, the braid is to be obtained from the
    Reichszeugmeisterei and its retail outlets only, starting 20th February 1934.

    The
    Stabschef:

    Röhm
    ."


    Regulations were later expanded and specified. Summarizing and replacing all previous individual regulations, an RFSS order published in the SS-Befehlsblatt of 25th April 1936 authorized wear of the chevron for the following persons:


    "1. SS members who had joined the SS prior to 30th January 1933.

    2. SS members who had already been members of the NSDAP or one of its organisations and affiliate associations as listed below prior to 30th January 1933:


    SA,
    HJ and DJ,
    NS-Deutscher Studentenbund
    NS-Arbeitsdienst (Reichsverband der Arbeitsdienstvereine)
    NS-Ärztebund
    NS-Juristenbund
    NS-Lehrerbund
    NS-Kriegsopferversorgung
    NS-Betriebszellenorganisation
    NS-Hago (Kampfbund des gewerblichen Mittelstandes)

    3. SS members who had been members of the 'Stahlhelm, Bund der Frontsoldaten' prior to 30th January 1933

    4. SS members who had been members of the
    'Deutsche Wehr' prior to 30th January 1933."


    Cases under no. 2 through 4 required proof of membership in the listed organisations and an immediate transfer to the SS (or, where applicable, parallel membership).

    After the annexation of Austria in 1938, another modification took place. Eligibility for the honor chevron was now extended to:


    1. All SS members holding citizenship of the former country of Austria who had already been members of the SS or who had applied for SS membership in Austria up until 12th February 1938 (The Schuschnigg/Hitler meeting at Berchtesgaden).

    2. All SS members able to prove membership in the NSDAP, its organisations and affiliate associations in Austria up until 12th February 1938 prior to their transfer to the SS.


    As far as I know, similiar modifications were made after the Sudetenland and Memelland annexations, but I have no data on this.
