Title Kriegsmarine NCO's qualification badge for 1st mate
Nationality German
Period c 1933-45
Price £15.00

This would appear to be a sleeve badge for wear on a summer white tunic or the naval summer blouse. The Deutsche Uniformen booklet, published by Moritz Ruhl in the period, describes this as a mate's badge ('maate').

It would appear to be badge of BeVo type construction, made of thin cotton and rayon. It is a bit crumpled and the edges are slightly frayed, especially the bottom edge.

Excellent information, Chris, you've been making a big effort! I will spell it out more closely (I'm a historian!) and don't think Bezdek can add much more.
