Seeking Photo of 1944 Era Kriegsmarine Maschinenobergefreiter Rank / Sleeve Insignia / SSI

Recommended Posts

Hello Folks,   I'm looking for a nice clear view of a WW2 Kriegsmarine Maschinenobergefreiter's Rank, Rating / Shoulder Sleeve Insignia. The more I look on both the web, & among my available texts, the more unsure of the exact design I become. If anyone here on the GMIC would PLEASE be so kind as to post a photograph of the Tank / Rating I'm looking for, I'll be extremely appreciative. The KM Sailor I'm researching was as noted above, an Maschinenobergefreiter aboard Schnellboot S-188 during 1944, if that's relevant to actual insignia or rating I'm looking for. THANK YOU

       Regards,    dpast32        ( dpast32@aol.com

The insignia for maschinen Nco and maanschaften is as below, this particular example being for the 'white jumper shirt'.

NCO ranks are as follows:

Gefreiter:  cogwheel with one chevron.

Obergefreiter: Cogwheel with two chevrons.

 

Example of a maschinenobergefreiter patch for the blue uniform:
