Default NCO Career Insignia

On entering the Kriegsmarine Service all personnel were assigned and trained for a specific career.

These careers consisted of a wide variety of specialty trades and functions with some of the careers restricted to certain rank groups.

On successful completion of the appropriate training, personnel were issued distinctive career insignia to be worn on the upper left sleeve of the uniforms.

For EM/NCO's the career insignia could be worn combined with rank insignia, or as separate insignia.

NCO ranks were on large oval bases and could be embroidered or stamped alloy versions.

Regulations detailed that the base color of the insignia was to match the color of the uniform on which it was worn.

Here are quite few of these insignia (to be added to as time permits)......
