    I don't know that. I only know the SS jogging.

    I very strongly doubt that it has any connection with the SS, as the skull looks like no pattern officially used by the SS.
    My gut feeling is that this one of the numerous variants of the Totenkopfschwimmerabzeichen [Death's Head Swimmer Badge], an unofficial swimming badge with a long tradition, which is awarded for swimming at least one hour (originally in the open sea, these days usually in swimming pools).

    Bravo. Our Bavarian friend is an insightful member of our community.

    The "scull" fetish in the internet makes everything somehow into SS regalia.

    this style of a skull was mapped to SS in my mind, indeed.

    So it is a civil patch, is one able to tell the period this pattern was produced? I read that these swim patches were produced pre and post war.
