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.

The parcel has arrived - at the time you indicated.

The sword lives up to expectations and looks even better than on the website. The detail and etching is superb.

Thanks so much for your help and the extra information.
