    The precise assignment of branch colors [Waffenfarben] was modified several times over the years. Mollo lists the following usages of the orange branch color:

    November 1939:
    Recruiting [Ergänzungsstellen]


    May 1940:
    Special Services [Sonderdienste], this included:
    Administrative Service [Verwaltungsdienst]
    Legal Service [Gerichtsdienst]
    Technical Service [Technischer Dienst]
    Recruiting Service [Ergänzungsdienst]
    Personnel of Garrison Headquarters [Angehörige der Standortkommandanturen]


    June 1942 (and Final):
    Special Services [Sonderdienste], this included:
    Technical Officers (Vehicles, Weapons and Signals) [Technische Führer (Kraftfahrzeuge, Waffen und Nachrichten)]
    Military Police [Feldgendarmerie]
    Recruiting Services [Ergänzungsdienste]
    Welfare Officers [Fürsorgeführer]

    Thanks HLP, I think I would lump these in the latter category due to them being captured in 1944.
