Oberschutze Rank Star Army on field grey cloth
WW2 German Army Oberschutze Rank on Field Grey
September 1936, the new formalised Wehrmacht Heer introduced a new ranking system to their new armed forces. In the new ranking was the Obershutze rank arm patch.
Throughout the war the patch underwent several changes, starting off being made on a field grey wool, then issued on a dark green/ bluish wool base and then finally in 1940 the base colour was to match that of the tunic e.g. black for Panzer, blue/ grey for Luftwaffe, even tan and olive for solders serving in tropical climates. The placement for that patch was on the left bicep.
This particular patch can be worn either as a 1st or 3rd pattern star either for pre-war impressions or mid-late war impressions
Made from the standard Field Grey wool base with a machine embroidered silver/ grey rank pip.
