SS Armband Question
This might be a hard question to answer, but when did SS members wear their armbands? Before the war, they can be seen being worn in parades and gatherings and such, but what about after the war began? I don't think they were worn in battle (or were they?). From 1939 to 1943, SS armbands (with paper tags) continued to be issued to new members. I have an SS armband with a paper tag that shows a lot of wear to it. Just wondering when they got a chance to wear them.

The kampfbinde was worn on the black uniform, which was the SS dress uniform. During the war period, the black uniform was worn in limited use only for special occasions.
