    The other point I would make in this regards is this: at no time in the brief, violent history of the SS was it at all a static organization. It was seized by perpetual change, and this change is signified by the endless circulars announcing changes to insignia which we have endeavored to accumulate here. I am very grateful for the wartime chart above, as evidence of the state of things at said point, prior to the decay of the SS in defeat, but I would be equally grateful for a wartime image of the staff of this organization in its Berlin headquarters, or another major locale and to see the uniform worn. And I am sure that some of our most expert members have further documentary evidence of signal value.

    May I also cite the chart in Vol. VI of Mollo on p. 105 as an addendum to the nice chart cited in post #28. Perhaps someone can reproduce it and append it here, as my scanner does not fit the Mollo books.

    SS items of note.SS items of note.Whereby, the personnel in the SS Main offices or later the RFSS (the R u S H A was such an SS Hauptamt) in TDA or T O & E billets paid for by the Reich also wore light grey.
    But, at the same time, if such specialist personnel of said Main Offices were seconded to the front in this specialist role, or such specialists were recruited for a limited role, then the would have worn the candy stripe insignia.
    In my SS administration book I have yet to find a break down of this, and I rely on Mollo's use of documents from 1939 onward.
    Thanks for the help with scan.

    For those who do not know: eine Planstelle is a billet, i.e. a personnel slot in the table of organization or Staerkenachweis of a headquarters or a unit.
    The SS as it matured went from its merely party role to that of state role, whereby the budget changed and was, in some cases, mixed.
    I make constant reference to this central fact that is meaningless to those without military experience at higher levels of command.
    The SS administrative book makes much of the pay and benefits of those who have left the NSDAP pay ranks to be mobilized by the Wehrmacht, and, later by the Waffen SS.
