militaria item Arbeitsdienst administration officer's collar patch
- German
These were worn by personnel of the RAD (Reichsarbeitsdienst), which was the organisation that all young men had to serve in prior to entring the Wehrmacht. It gave them basic military skills and got them fit for service. The RAD were used for major construction projects in Germany before the war (eg buildling autobahns and bridges).

militaria item Schutzpolizei epaulette for Hauptwachtmeister
- German
Because of its bright nature, I strongly suspect that this originally came from a peace time parade uniform and would have been stitched into the shoulder. The two pips and the aluminium braid bar at the base of the epaulette give the rank and the indication of four years' service.

militaria item Prussian Guard artillery collar patch, Somme battle find
- German
This gem is inscribed 'High Wood Aug. 1916' on the hessian backing of the reverse. No doubt a Thomas Atkins souvenir, picked up perhaps in an abandoned dug-out, or even removed from a corpse! High Wood was perhaps one of the best known locations in that eventful summer, with a fearsome reputation on both sides.

militaria item Army major's epaulettes, Justice Administration Department
- German
These were distinguished from regular service pairs by having an extra layer of dark green cloth under the waffenfarbe. In this case, the latter is for the Justice section of the administration department. These tended to survive better, and in greater numbers, than the field variety.

militaria item Prussian Train officer's epaulette
- German
This is an oberleutnant's example (one star). The silver bullion with black silk thread denotes a Prussian unit. The light blue underlay denotes the arm of service, in this case the Military Train (transport corps). The button is of gilding metal,with a gilt rank star.

militaria item Prussian Artillery officer's epaulette
- German
This replaced the silver bullion epaulettes as a war time economy measure, the black/white chevron denoting Prussian service, the red underlay the artillery branch, and the number that of the regiment. By virtue of the single pip, this is for an oberleutnant's rank. The insignia is zinc with a feldgrau wash.

militaria item Two Schupo Litzen, one cotton and one wool
- German
These are two different examples of Schutzpolizei collar tabs, introduced in the uniform changes of 1936. The Schupo were a truly national force, as opposed to the Gendarmerie/Landespolizei (countryside) and Gemeindepolizei (town police). They, like the Ordnungspolizei, lived in barracks, a little bit like the Guardia Civil of Franco's Spain.

militaria item PAK gunner's collar patch, 1944 model
- German
This is the economy version of BeVo type material, worn on the last pattern tunic of 1944. The pink piping denotes a PAK gunner (anti-tank), who shared the same piping colour as their Panzer colleagues.

militaria item Customs officer's shoulder strap
- German
This epaulette is for the rank of Zollbetriebs-Assistent in the German Customs. The Gothic lettering RFV stands for Reichsfinanzverwaltung, the National Finance Administration. It is made of a mixture of bottle green cloth and bright and dulled aluminium braid. It is in good condition and there is the correct silver button with the piece.

militaria item Schutzmannscaft NCO's collar patches
- German
These were worn by the irregular units raised by the German army as auxilliaries for service in WW2, on the Russian front, mainly from nationalist Baltic peoples and Ukrainians, to assist the SS and police in anti-partisan operations. For fear of Russian discovery after the war, little of this Schuma material survived.
