Default Single NVA Service Chevron

So I have been reading some old posts and have a few questions about the use of the single chevron other than the typical Uffz. auf Zeit.

1. Wach Regiment F-D enlisted: It is my understanding that they all served longer than the typical 18 month NVA conscript. Is that correct?

2. Grenztruppen enlisted: I have seen a dark collar wooly enlisted tunic with a single chevron. Is this correct? Were there enlisted men who served more than 18 months and were not Uffz. auf Zeit?

1. Yes, conscripts in the Felix Dzerzhinsky guards regiment served for 3 years.

2. The single chevron meant service longer than 1.5 years, up to 3 years. Not everyone was promoted to unteroffizier during that time.
