An uncommon cuff title
SS X-RAY BATTALION, IN HAND EMBROIDERED ALUMINIUM THREAD.
Interesting title, double tagged.
Band made by rzm number a4/26, rossberg and schube, annaberg.
(the town of annaberg was home to several band makers, and was famed for its lace making history)
the title was embroidered by m. Iorres, a4/264, ottostrasse, kunststickerei, otto strasse, munich.
(a mere stones throw from the brown house, and ss/gestapo headquarters.)
THE FACT THAT THE EMBROIDERER WROTE HIS RZM NUMBER IN INK, COULD SIGNIFY THAT HE WAS A SMALL SPECIALIST ARTISAN EMBROIDERER, HE WOULD ALMOST CERTAINLY HAVE BEEN KEPT BUSY WITH WORK FROM THE NEARBY SS/HQ AND BROWN HOUSE.

The SS was packed to the gills with doctors.
