Title Kriegsmarine NCO's sleeve badge - writer
Nationality German
Period c 1933-45
Sold

This is a reasonably uncommon NCO qualification badge for, essentially, a naval clerk. Bear in mind that, at this period, not everybody could read and write, even in Germany, let alone proficiently, so someone with a good working knowledge of written German, and with good handwriting, would have qualified for this post.

It is a die-struck gilt bronze badge pinned on to a navy blue woollen broadcloth backing on a tin base. Sadly, much of the backing has been severely mothed at some stage, though this all appears now to be dead.

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

The bayonet arrived safe and sound this morning. It is absolutely magnificent. I am thrilled to bits with it. Thanks for all the interest you have shown.

My very best wishes, and thank you, very sincerely, once again.
