    Thanks. I wonder how this man of advanced age got the SA sports badge? He is shaking hands with Backe, who was agricultural minister, and whose book I own. This image is from 1944, I think. So much for all black SS uniforms being made into rags or placed on the backs of Hiwis in the outback of where ever.

    The chances of the Odalrune raute being worn by a member of the SS-TV are slim. Here is the official specification for the badge from 1937. It specifically mentions that the badge is for RuS-Ha staff on the Oberabschnitten. I suppose you cannot rule out the possibility of a Totenkopfverbaende connection but based on period documents I think it is extremely unlikely.
    The reference to Bauernreferenten being included explains pictures of Arnold wearing both types of diamond. As an agricultural specialist his earler 'Life' rune was replaced by the Odalrune.

    I have recently been doing some research on the sleeve diamonds and one of the things I found interesting was this last note to a 1933 order that allows a second diamond for a specialist formation to be worn above the arm of service diamond.

    Very interesting. Thank you. Scarcely a month goes by without some new revelation about this complex insignia.

    Sorry; but I'm afraid that's not what it says. (The confusion is probably due to the word "über", which, in this case, does not mean "above".)

    The first paragraph mentions the sleeve badges for administrative and medical officers; the second one translates as:

    "Concerning these, as well as the sleeve badges for specialist formations, which are to be worn in the same place, separate regulations shall be issued."

    Thanks HPL, I bow to your superior translating skills. I'm afraid I rather jumped at my translation as it did fit rather neatly with the occasional images one sees of SS men wearing two diamonds.

ID:	451822The SS Befehlsblaetter and the RZM circulars suffer from turgid and poorly written grammar of an alarming kind. Thanks to all for a nice thread of merit.

    I believe that F-Bs interpretation of the photo with the Elbe cufftitle is most likely correct. While reading this description of the career of the owner of the TK ring on this well known dealers site I couldnt help but notice the similarity to Dimas's interpretation of the photo.
