    Here is the document I was thinking of earlier in the thread. To summarize, it submits a design as a replacement for the earlier blank tab for 3 reasons:
    1. The blank tab does nothing for the Esprit de Corps of the Austrians.

    Just for the sake of completeness, allow me to add that the SS officer seen above is Alfred Rodenbücher, formerly head of the SS-Oberabschnitt Österreich and, after the ban of the Austrian SS, head of the SS-Sammelstelle from 1935 to 1938.
