Default handgranate werfer armband

Posted this in the awards section but thought it could be better here.
Has anyone ever come across such an armband?
thanks
andy

How about the full photo? Any info on the reverse? Looks like it may be a boasting rights item to wear whilst drinking.

To me that has to be about the most unusual armband ever. Perhaps he's trying out for a Sturm unit and hasn't earned his black hand grenade patch for his sleeve yet?

I think these are most likely temporary armbands, worn at a training course by either trainees or instructors.

No military info on the back. Only hi brother, greetings, we've got beer, thanks for your card, Alfred.
