Here are some more badges from the Marine.

I believe the blue/red badges are of an older vintage and are no longer worn.

Top row from left to right: A pair of Marinewaffendienst patches flank a Heer badge. I think this badge is worn by engineer (pionier) troops who man assault boats and bridge boats

Second row: Marinetechnikdienst & Marinefliegerdienst (current)

3rd Row: Schiffssicherung (I believe this one is obsolete).

4th Row: Richtschuetzen, Flugsicherungspersonal, Amphibienfahrer, Elektronikpersonal (I believe these are obsolete).

A comparison of BRD and DDR patches.

The BRD rating called "Richtschuetzen" is on the left, the DDR rating on the right is called "Artillerie".

The DDR matches the TR style almost perfectly.

Five of them are standard Kleiderkasse (the then official supplier of Bundeswehr uniforms and badges) items, but the bronze Navy wing must be something specially produced. Compare the quality of the stitching of the eagle with the other birds more on the ugly side.











Have a nice evening,
Steve

Beautiful birds in the photos, but not quite as pretty as those Fulcrums...

TJ,

You could be right about the Amphibienfahrer being absolete. When I visited the Military Wholesale Warehouse a couple of weeks ago they had bags full of this particular badge.

Regards,

Gordon

Here's a look at the U-Boat Personnel badge. The top one is in bullion; the bottom in gold thread.

Various forms of the Rohrwaffenpersonal badge.

I often saw this badge worn by my favorite Bundeswehr troops, the Panzergrenadiere.

Is "Tubed Weapon Specialist" an adequate translation? How do you qualify for this badge (MILAN, TOW, Light Anti-Tank Weapon, Carl Gustav, Panzerfaust 3?)

However they do it, it must be fun!

With a quick glance at the almighty internet, I think you have to have Ausbildungshöhe 7 (WIKI), and at least 6 months of experience with those weapons.

"Das Tätigkeitabzeichen Rohrwaffenpersonal kann nur an Soldaten der AVR Infanterie, Panzer, Heeresaufklärer, Artillerie, Heeresflugabwehr, Pionier verliehen werden."

I'm sure someone knows better.
