On the shoulder straps of the KM field grey uniform, only a limited number of destinctive devices were worn. Most seen are the crossed anchors (with and without Latin letters/numbers or Arab numbers above), the winged shell on an anchor or the crossed lightning flashes with a 'schwinge' on an anchor.

This Unteroffizier however, is wearing the steering wheel in metal, as for Transportation Units, an intersting variation

Yes Morten

Crossed anchors were worn by Marineartillerie pre 1939, and by Schiffsstammabteilungen and Marineunteroffizierlehrabteilungen post 1939. The dark green shoulder straps were replaced by shoulder straps of uniform material after 1939.

In 1939 (Verfügung vom 13.3.1939; Marine-Vorschrift 39, Nr.216) the Naval Artillery Units changed the device on their shoulderstraps, from crossed anchors to an anchor below a winged granade

Hi Odulf,
 Thanks for the quick response of my question to you on this fine thread that I hope more can contribute.
 Pictures showing KM shoulder straps of the KM yellow gray uniform are my new collector area now. I'll post some of my photos and I appreciate if you comment on and provide info about the different shoulder straps.

Cheers, Morten.
