Title Kriegsmarine NCO's sleeve patch - Sperrvormann
Nationality German
Period c 1933-45
Price £15.00

These oval badges were worn by NCOs and denoted their particular professional skill, in this case Sperrvormann (I think this is either mine layer or possibly mine sweeper). It would have been worn on the upper left arm.

It is machine embroidered red (perhaps a cotton/rayon mix as it has a sheen to it) on a navy blue wool twill ground. It measures just under 9cm long and is in good condition, but the edges are a little frayed and there is some minor soiling on the dark blue ground next to the mine.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

Sword arrived today. Fabulous. This is an excellent example of a fighting sword of its period, and a real gem. The 1828 Pattern is such a gorgeous sword, and this is a fine example. Even my bride is impressed and she doesnít really get swords.
