by flattening do you mean using a flat iron on them?

I don't know how you obtained my user name "w4uvv" but I received an email alert of your post. I never have posted any armband picture to this particular forum thread.

I sight checked and I think you were attempting to respond to a "Kyles Bullets" post in "2".

I usually put a towel or something similar over them, and then iron them. So there isn't any direct contact with the iron.

There is this book from 1968, which doesn't really have much info besides pictures of some armbands, and a dozen or have the wrong identification, and there is a couple which are questionable from that time even. There is also a Manion's book from 1969 I believe, which as far as I know has a similar problem. No current texts on the subject unfortunately.

One new one for the thread, Kraft durch Freude. These blue KdF bands come in 3 other variations (with white stripes on top and bottom, and the same as the armband in post 11 with and without stripes) , and countless other locally produced variations.

Thank you bmsmear for your identification of the two armbands I posted. These have been here in my area of Tennessee since the end of WW ll. They were brought home by a local man who had served by going into captured German towns for a few days and setting up a new government...weeding out local Nazi officials as well as he could. I have known this gentleman (now deceased) since i was a young boy when he returned from the war. He was a local attorney and served as mayor of a small town in my home county here for many years. He was a Harvard law school graduate...and prior to the war had served as the private secretary to the then Tennessee Governor. It was that experience that he used during the war...riding a motorcycle all over Germany in setting up new local governments. I obtained the two armbands directly from his family.
