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.

testimonials

Today I received your flag. It's very nice and looks genuine to me. Beautifull crisp colors! It looks barely used. It's a nice addition to my ww2 collection. I would even say, one of my top pieces.

Thanks for your excellent service and top communication!

I will check your site more often to see if you have more nice pieces.
