Germany - Third Reich: Single Wehrmacht Heer Infantry Non Commissioned Officer’s shoulder title, post 1938 issue with rounded end, white piping in wool indicative of issue up to 1941.
Condition: Good Condition.
The German army uniform was standard through the army and most jackets had removable shoulder boards. These shoulder boards or Schulterklappen where sewn from wool with a coloured piping on the side to designate the specific branch the soldier was serving in. At first shoulder boards where still manufactured with wool piping but around 1941 they switched to rayon piping. Further in the war these shoulder boards became more simplified and less well made. A lot of different shoulder boards where worn in the German army between 1933 and 1945 and they came with different sizes, colours, piping and ranks.
