    I'm wondering what is on the PL's sleeve. It looks rather like a party badge, but larger. Could it be the Staff sleeve badge?

    Kevin,

    Here is another image of the Armbadge.

    This image was found in "Cloth Insignia of the NSDAP and SA" by John R. Angolia, page 74.

    The image of the swastika armbadge was for a Stabsleiter (Staff Leader). The Party insignia was worn on the upper left sleeve. It was a black swastika on a white field encircled by a red ring encircled by a thin silver border on a black wool diamond.

    Thanks for the confirmation and nice photo, Smitty! Now if I could just find out who some of the men in the photo are...

    Stabsleiter on the photo is Ortsgruppenleiter and I would date this photo taken after August 1933.
