solving a mystery
i am working on solving a mystery with a allgemeine officers tunic , i have seen some odd photos when it comes to some early placements of insignia , but would like to narrow it down to these qustions and hope some one can help
1/ is there any photos showing a diamond shape insignia worn on the right sleeve for the german allgemeine or know of some regulation to a unit . i know there is for the dutch and flemish
2/ i have read some time ago about used allgemeine tunics been pased over to the flemish and Dutch is there any more info out there on the workings of this process
3/ the flemish equivantent of the german Allgemeine ss was set up in 1940 and i think the dutch around the same time
its become confusing because its well known they were supplied with ex german allgemeine tunics yet at the same time himmler orderd all tunics were to be handed in at the start of the war unless there were reason;s of personal

You can start with this source.
A sleeve diamond on a black SS tunic.
thanks yes i have read that book , the diamond shape line that is left on the upper part of the right sleeve is a lot larger yet for it comply with the dutch there should be a trace of a diamond on the left slevee yet i can see none from what i can see under the 1936 dated Kampfbinde ,
the tunic it self originates from Nuremberg taylor
