    Coastal collar tab pip?

    Does anyone know what the pip on the collar tab represents? I don't recall seeing this before...
    Sorry about the dodgy screenshot from ebay..

    Hi Martin, never seen this before, and never have read something about this insignia combination

      Could it be some kind of temporary rank? Perhaps a field rank.

        In the absence of any regulation that would have explained this, my guess would be some special function, role or responsibility, probably invented at a local/ unit level and definitely not common practice.
        If anyone has other photos of this practice or a tunic displaying signs of a pip having been applied in that place, I'd be keen to see that posted..

            It's a Wehrmacht Gefolge (armed forces assistance personnel) badge. AFAIK, Wehrmacht Gefolgen had no hierarchy thus no rank insignia.
            Navy Yard Fire Brigades and Navy Yard Police had pips denoting senior NCO rank, but regulations mandated quite a different uniform with different collar patches.
            Maybe it's an improvised outfit, very interesting nonetheless.
