Thank you.
Hi Frank, the two all brown pairs to the left are Unterwactmeister & Rottwachtmeister ranks worn by polizei for multiple branches. However, at a later on the TN did changed rank insignia to look like the OrPo and they did look like the pair on the right with black backing. Is the reverse black wool? Problem with these is that RAD used a very similar rank but with a velvet backing. That's a basic overview and this topic can become even more convoluted. I'll try and track down a past thread on this RAD vs. TN and also look for my TN handbuch that had further rank information.
Interested in the Gendarmerie - Schutzpolizei - Gemeinden - Feuerschutzpolizei - Wasserschutzpolizei - Etc. Looking For Anything Polizei Related!
