Photos that go with the insignia, ca. 1936, during the expansion of said entities.
Good thread FB.
Interesting photos. Look at those piles of goodies at the depot..
Mr Delich has some rare treasures in his advanced collection.
Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

Amazing artifacts to be able to view.
We behold the opposite elsewhere, as well as the odd tendency thereby to offer a showcase to every piece of junk and then rant and rave about such fakes for twenty pages, and the result is doom's day.

Thank you F-B for sharing these pieces and please pass along my hearty thanks to Mr. Delich for sharing from his remarkable collection.
It is always a pleasure to see David's excellent examples of insignia. The shoulderboards are particularly interesting to see.
At the risk of being labelled a pedant I think that the two cufftitles are Allgemeine-SS cufftitles. Both the Uebungslager and the Wirtschaftsbetriebe are strictly speaking offices that were outside the control of Eicke and the SS-TV.
Thanks. I was more oriented to the collar patch and the shoulder boards, in fact in my haste to post a title for the thread. We are always grateful for your insights into this arcane material.
Any primary documents in this connection you want to include would enrich us all, since you among few have worked your way through them. Also, I have not had the privilege to read your own monograph on all of this, either. Moreover, Mollo includes these two cuff titles in his vol. IV, which was always the basis of my knowledge in all of this.
