    The Fürsorge-Referent was indeed the welfare official for the unit. The Odalrune and this man's authorization may well reflect this role, as the welfare of SS members and their families came under the auspices of RuSHA. The job was to provide economic assistance for needy SS members and to look after the widows and orphans of SS men. The SS had a financial reserve for this purpose and the Fürsorge-Referent was the authority through which SS men or relatives could apply.

    Thank you. This issue is described in some detail on p. 35 of the SHAEF intelligence manual on the Allgemeine SS produced in wartime. Might you one day show us the relevant part in the order of 1937 whence the roman numeral was introduced for the cuff for the Sturmbann staff?

    Here is Walther Darre, the head of the Rasse- und Siedlungshauptamt in his glory days. This image is from the Arnold collection for sale by Jeff Clark. Sta 31  Niederbayern portrait.

    Dr. Ley is probably the most intriging character in the photo next to Herbert Backe.

    "Might you one day show us the relevant part in the order of 1937 whence the roman numeral was introduced for the cuff for the Sturmbann staff?"

    I could have sworn I did, but one of the drawbacks of a forum, no matter how good the search function, is my inability to locate material as readily and easily as I can in a book.
    Anyway, here is the document you are looking for. It is one of the earlier drafts and shows some amendments. This June, 1937 order is a blanket summary of all the insignia of the Allgemeine-SS and in the majority of cases is just confirming the wearing of badge. So this date cannot be used for the introduction of the titles with any certainty.

    Many thanks to d'Alquen for sharing the above document concerning the A-SS cuff titles. On this occasion,can I just say that the original research into period primary sources undertaken by him and Friedrich-Berthold is priceless. Much information can found on this forum that one will not find in any of the standard references (hope I don't overuse this term) and the above information on the Roman numeral cuff titles for Sturmbann staff personnel is just the latest example for this. I for one keep learning new things here almost every day.
