Neat - albeit regrettably single! - WH (Heeres) - I deem - early-war-period- (ie. 'M36/M40'-pattern) NCO-type shoulderstrap as was intended for usage by an: 'Unteroffizier eines Sanitäts-Rgts. o. Abts.'
This is an attractive - albeit regrettably single - WH (Heeres) NCO- (ie. 'M36/M40'-pattern) shoulderstrap as piped in the darker-blue- (ie. 'blauer'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for usage by an NCO (ie. 'Unteroffizier' or: junior-sergeant ie. medical-orderly) who served within a: 'Sanitäts-Abteilung' and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or most certainly once tunic-attached-), condition. The neat strap is just moderately used and/or worn and does show some minimal wear, age and/or staining but is void of any damage or alike (as can be seen on the pictures). The strap shows the darker-blue- (ie. 'blauer'-) coloured- and desirable 'silk-like'-type piping and measures approximately 11 cms. in length. The piece shows the 'standard'-pattern silver-coloured, NCO-braid period-attached and comes mounted onto its tongue (as can be seen on the pictures). The strap is constructed from the typical darker-green-coloured wool and is with certainty a: 'standard-issued'- (ie. non-tailor-made) piece. These type of shoulderstraps are of the typical (early- ie. pre-)war-period pattern straps and were worn throughout the war). This particular strap originated from a smaller cloth- ie. shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired for the web-site. Simply an attractive - and with certainty desirable! - 'Sanitäter'-related, NCO-type 'Heeres' shoulderstrap: too bad that it is only a single specimen!
