    Default SS-Schütze boards and Totenkopf tab

    I have posted these items for review and for opinions originality, date of manufacture, and what the yellow piping means for sure with the SS. I am fairly confident in that I have made good pics on these items but I have been fooled before! Thanks to everyone in advance!

    This may be a novice question but were signals recon or what function did they carry out?

    Both are good original items. The tab is the type found at Dachau and as Robert has correctly said, both are late war items. The shoulder straps often given the collector term "M44" type. As you can see, they are simplified from a construction point of view.

    Signals troops were involved with wireless (radio) communications. "Recon" or more correctly Aufklärungs were a completly different branch of service and carried out recconnaisance work.

    Cheers, Ade.
