For me that love police unit also feldgendarmerie of Herman Goering dIV. 1944 is very rare. I see it only on Opsrey's book GERMAN MILITARY POLICE UNIT 1939-45.
I never see propagandenkonpanie in Italy

Dear Eric,

Wow, Eric...a wonderful rock. Those straps are as rare as can be! Is there an FJ cuff on it?

I have been reading your posts on FJ cufftitles, which I have always liked, and just ordered Williamson's book on cuffbands.

Eric, out of curiosity is the tunic marked to a different unit. It is always interesting to see where people transfered in the the FJ unit from.

With the sewn in (factory) FJ boards, it is unlikely that this would have been something that he would have worn while serving with his previsous unit. The lining is stamped F.J.K.

I have never heard of NCO boards embroidered to the unit being sewn in at the factory. Fascinating.

Eric, I talked to Tim Curley and Neil Stewart about the shoulder boards being factory applied. Do you have a source for this? This is one of the perplexing questions about Waffenrocks, no one (aside, I guess from you based on your statement) including Tim and Neil knows if, and what types of boards were factory sewn on tunics and if they were embroidered when issued or with tress etc. I would love to know your source of information and will pass it on the them.
