    are you sure it's black and not dark blue? sounds like a german navy breast eagle. some were woven in gilted metal threads, others in artificial silk (cello or trade-name celleon). administrative officers wore aluminum thread eagles and maybe also silver-colored thread eagles. after some time at sea the metal coated eagles' threads corroded looked bad; it was the salt air...

    Hi again,

    I have attached a scan of the eagle, gold on black ground, about 8x3 cm +/-, see front and back.

    I can only asume that a survivor or an ex-Jewish Brigade brought this eagle back to Palestine after the war.

    Any idea on this?

    Thanks,
    Neil.

    yes a nice flat-woven BeVo example, made by the BeVo firm of wuppertal, germany. this one was issued and worn, and clearly removed from a uniform.

    it is the enlisted mans' eagle for the left upper arm of a sand-colored tunic of italian cut (the "saharina") model), as worn in tropical/warm regions by troops of the armed ss aka the waffen-ss.

    I'm sure that the true definition has been told before, but interestingly, the term BeVo is mostly mis-understood, and mis-interpreted.

    BeVo is a term used by collectors to refer to a style of silk embroidery common in German WW II badges. The name itself comes from the BeVo-Wuppertal firm

    Be stands for Beteilingung, or "partnership" in English, Vo is short for Vorsteher. The firm BeVo-Wuppertal came into being when the firms of Lucas Vorsteher and Ewelda Vorsteher amalgamated; both came from the Wuppertal-Bermen area.

    So now you know
