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.

Just letting you know that the whistle arrived here this morning safe and sound. Your excellent packaging was still totally intact and it took me all of five minutes to break into it to see my purchase. I am very pleased, it is a great whistle.

I received the book yesterday and I must say I am delighted with it, a cracking piece of work ... A very big thank you for perservering and getting the book to me, a big thumbs up for you and your business.
