One more Roman numeral , but much lower - so the II could be for :
district number 2 = Chemnitz ,
but also for any member on the staff of a 2nd Sturmbann of any Standarte after 1937 .
Paper tag " B " sewn in , for the band itself + another " B " added for the minimal embroidery , these make perfect sense ..
An EMPTY cufftitle of 1936 ;
To me a cufftitle for the Sicherheitsdienst , or possibly a leftover sent to the Germanic SS in Holland to be worn like this .
BUT : it could also have been worn by a member of the staff of any Standarte . And then only from 1937 onwards .. ?
I'm trying to keep up , but during the period , people involved must also have had a hard time with all of these ( constantly changing ) regulations - the earlier colored borders must have been a bureaucrats dream .
