Heer Motor Transport Personnel's Sleeve Badge
EM/NCO personnel holding the ranks of Schütze to Stabsfeldwebel inclusively who had achieved proficiency at a particular trade on successful completion of the appropriate training, by being issued a distinctive trade specialty badge that was most commonly worn on the lower right sleeve of the service tunic or field blouse with a few exceptions. Originally the trade badges were worked on a blue/green badge cloth base, but in early 1940 this was altered to a field-grey wool base or the appropriate color of the uniform it was to be worn on.
Pre – 1940, made of dark green badge cloth with hand embroidered Gothic “S,” in golden yellow rayon threads. The reverse is covered by black paper backing. Un-issued exampel with minor signs of age.
