    SCHUMA Cloth Items fill a kind of mystical niche for me. They are just beautiful & artistic.

    My understanding of the Schuma Organization, is that they were essentially Non-Germanic Members serving the Sipo/SD - Polizei in occupied areas (outside of Germany). Primarily in the Baltics and Ukraine. (They filled the manpower void in these areas.) There were German Officers in the ultimate control - but did they wear SCHUMA Cloth? Don't know. The Cloth Items are nothing short of exquisite, with fine machine embroidery & colors. The SCHUMA Motto of
    "Faithfullness, Bravery & Obedience" is found on the Patches.

    I got lucky early on in collecting and found 2 sets of Shoulder Boards & 3 Patches.

    The Orange NCO - EM Schuma Patch for Gendarmerie - is just a beauty, it's almost too pretty.

    It's a true beauty, as those of you who have handled one know all too well.

    Only by chance, I just acquired 2 Schuma Officers Collar Tabs. The Collar tabs are attributed to the Ukrainian Schuma.

    This would be for the rank of Brigadefuhrer or Major. These are both for the left collar - so maybe someone has the 2 right Collar Tabs. If so, we need to talk about this! Txs, Dave / dblmed

    A neat grouping that I got in a trade.
    A pair of 'Oversized' Orange Piped Police Green Boards with Orange Swastikas & the Orange Gendarmerie Schuma Sleeve Patch

    The larger Orange Gendarmerie Schuma are thought to have been for use on an overcoat?

    SCHUMA BACKGROUND: With the invasion of Russia on June 22ND 1941 the German army quickly occupied large tracts of territory resulting in ever extending rear areas that required policing to maintain order amongst the population and to secure open transportation and communication lines to the front. Originally the army had established small auxiliary police units for these purposes which were followed by SS action groups.

    The territories occupied proved to be too large for these small auxiliary units to police effectively which resulted in recruitment of local anti-communist personnel which were formed into Schuma, short for Schutzmannschaften, (Protection Troops), units in November 1941.

    The Schuma personnel fell under the control of the regional Höhere SS und Polizeiführer, (Higher SS and Police Leader). These Schuma personnel wore a wide variety of uniforms, headgear and insignia including surplus black Allgemeine-SS uniforms, and assorted field-grey and police green items.

    In June 1942 distinctive cap and sleeves emblems were introduced for Schuma personnel to distinguish them from Ordnungspolizei, (Order Police), personnel.
