Luftwaffe Medical Corps

The Medical Branch of the Luftwaffe was one of the original career fields present when the Luftwaffe came out into the open on March 01, 1935.

The standard waffenfarbe for the Luftwaffe Medical branch was cornflower blue. When attached to the Hermann Goering Division and the Luftwaffe Field Division, the solid blue collar tabs and shoulder boards were to be retained, by order(although as most rules, this one seemed to have been broken from time to time).

These men and officers filled roles ranging from direct patient care in the field to research and development of medications and procedures to drafting health awareness cartoons. Dentists were also included in the medical corps.

Ranking nomenclature:

Enlisted:

Sanitatssoldat- soldat

Sanitatsobersoldat- Oberschutz

Sanitatsgrefeiter- Grefeiter

Sanitatsobergrefeiter- Obergrefeiter

Sanitatsunteroffizier- Unteroffizier

Sanitatsunterfeldwebel- Unterfeldwebel

Sanitatsfeldwebel- Feldwebel

Sanitatsoberfeldwebel- Oberfeldwebel

Sanitatsstabsfeldwebel- Stabsfeldwebel

Officer:

Assistenzarzt- Leutnant

Stabsarzt- Hauptmann

Oberstabsarzt- Major

Oberfeldarzt- Oberstleutnant

Oberstarzt- Oberst

Generalarzt- Generalmajor

The Luftwaffe used trained Officials for medical ancillary services. The specialties can be recognized by the nebenfarbe on the shoulder boards.

Hello Paul

I found this photo in a "Der Adler" magazine. It shows from the left, Sanit?tsinspekteurs der Luftwaffe Generalarzt Dr. Neum?ller, and Oberst?rzten Dr. S?nbrich and Dr. Martius. The photo was taken at a consert. Is there any special insignia, or waffenfarbe, that would show that the general belonged to the medical branch?

That is one great photo. Thank you for sharing. The only way to Identify a medical General would be the medical insignia cypher on the shoulder boards.

Two more photos, from "Der Adler". I tried to make close ups of the most interesting bits of the pictures. Both photos shows the sanit?ter armband in use. I hope they are of interest.
