'BeVo'-woven, enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCOs'-) pattern, so-called: RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') sleeve-badge (or: 'Dienststellenabzeichen'), bearing the specialist- ie. unit-designation: '44/5'
This is an attractive example of an enlisted-mens'- (ie. NCOs'-) version of a so-called: RAD (ie. 'Reichsarbeitsdienst') sleeve-badge (or: 'Dienststellen-Abzeichen') bearing the specialist- ie. unit-designation: '44/5' (as was intended for a RAD-staff-member who served within the 5th Abteilung within the 44th district ie. 'Bezirk') and that comes in an overall very nice (ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'- and/or never tunic-attached-), condition. These neat badges were worn on the upper-left sleeve of the mustard-coloured (EM- ie. NCO-type-) RAD-tunics and/or garments. The badge - which shows the red-coloured '44/5'-numerals on white-coloured- and spade-shaped field - is neatly executed in so-called: 'BeVo'-weave-pattern and comes as 'straightly cut-off the role'. The patch shows a typical and nicely interwoven so-called: 'RADJ-Ges.Gesch.-G.e.W.'-designation on its top and is just a tiny bit wrinkled caused by decades of storage. This badge originates from a smaller collection of RAD-cloth-insignia I recently acquired. I deem that this attractive RAD-insignia-piece is accordingly priced!
