Title ORs torpedo mechanic specialist sleeve badge
Nationality German
Period c 1933-45
Price £10.00

These round badges were worn by ORs and denoted their particular professional skill, in this case a torpedo mechanic. Torpedo mechanics would have been responsible for maintaining the tin fish on the U-boats, torpedo boats and destroyers, setting fuses and depth running systems. It was worn on the upper left arm.

This is made of dark blue wool broadcloth with an embroidered device with what looks like a linen backing. Its diameter is 5.5cm and its condition is ex-stores.

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.
