Combat Trucker,

Interesting comment but what are you trying to say? There is nothing new in these auctions. Onlly thing to note, as is usual with these auctions, is that the cummerbund is missing.

Regards,

Gordon

Here is my LW Oberstleutnant uniform with the newly applied airborne wings. From the remaining stitching that came with my jacket this appears to be what the original officer had qualified for. Obviously the grade of the badge is a guess

Looks like a Pilots wing from here.

Hello Gents,

I wasn't acquainted with this tactical badge until I came across it on eBay recently.

Can anyone tell us what is necessary to qualify for the Unterwasserwaffenpersonal badge?

Thanks,
TJ

Here is a "subdued" version of the badge.

Did I read here recently that subdued rank insignia (i.e. black on olive or black on Flecktarn) is strictly unofficial and not authorized?

Thanks,
TJ

Guardian 5,

One of the things that we have little information on for these tactical badges is what type of training is required to qualify for the badge initially. Mostly, they are related to the job the person performs in the BW. This particular badge probably indicates the person is qualified to test/repair etc. underwater weapons. The badges come in three grades and the qualifications to wear each grade is as follows:

Badges are awarded at three levels:
Stage I - Bronze, after 6 months of service in the subject-related use
Level II - Silver, after 5 years in the use of subject-specific
Stage III - Gold, after 10 years in the use of subject-specific
As a specialized use is the training time for specialist activities.
When reservists total of 2 or more weeks of reserve training time apply every year for over 1 year in the subject-related use.

In his book, "Von der Affenjcake zum Tropentarnanzug" Walter Kunstwadl indicates that these Tactical cloth embroidered badges were authorized for wear on the Feldtarnanzug and the Flecktaranzug as of 13. Junuar 1993.

Regards,

Gordon

Gordon is quite right, a Marine tatigkeitsabzeichen for "Unterwasserwaffenpersonal".
Prost ! Steve.

If you guys do begin a discussion on these at another post would you care to put a link here?

To resolve what jackets existed when may have to wait a while. I have a complete set of ZVd 37/10 wending its way across the ocean and perhaps there will be something in there that will help.
Your comment about the boards being sewn in at one end finally made me take a close look at my jcaket. The shoulder ends are sewn into the seams and the buttons are the screw on type that have one end sewn to the jacket shoulder at the collar end. Amazing that I have owned this uniform for over ten years and never noticed that before. The next question to answer is "What is the difference between the "Gesellschaft shoulderboards" and the "Smoking Jacket shoulderboards"?
As promised, here are scans of the Gesellschaft uniforms as printed in the latest issue of ZDv 37/10 for both men and women. Has anyone every seen a woman's Gesellschaft uniform?

Regards,

Gordon
