Default TSD general (1944 regulation) tabs and what are the others?

I am turning to the forum for help on determining what branch these collar tabs are.

The ones on the left are clearly TSD (they came as a set with boards) but I am a bit puzzled on the other two sets.

My guess is the ones in the center are 1944 regulation Medical and the right set Coastal Artillery.

I would certainly expect one of the two darker pairs to be for an admiral in feldgrau.

I'd say you're right in your assessment, based off the below chart.

Is there a resource somewhere for these different coloured variants?

Cheers,

Thank you gentlemen for taking the time to comment!

So you would rule out that the tabs on the right are also TSD?

Best... Kurt

I had no idea there were so many General Officer tab colors. I thought the Veterinary korps fell under the medical directorate... and was too small to have it's own general officers... Maybe I am wrong?


I know that there were medical and TSD Generals. I don't know the difference between Admiral and medical tabs. Maybe they shared insignia? They were both cornflower blue.

Kurt, you naming each pair in the first post seems to fit the color scheme.

Paul,

there was no German branch too small for their own insignia; the ONLY Waffenoffizier holding general rank after the regulation about the Waffenfarbe for generals was introduced even had his own insignia: http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...d.php?t=623088

Attached is an image with some of the tabs from my collection. In the lower right corner, you see tabs for a Veterinarian general.

Just a remark on the chart in post # 3:

I created it back in 2013. Then as I now I would like to add the disclaimer that it is somewhat schematic and that the colors are a bit off, as it is not a professional job and was done by very simple means.

Here's my original post on the WRF showing the chart with the text that should accompany it:

Wonderful collar tabs, all!

Here is a pair that Weitze classifies as Coastal Artillery.

Thanks to everyone for your contribution!

@HPL2008 -- I still think your chart is the best overview out there! Thanks for taking the time to create it back then.
