Kriegsmarine Rank Description Help Needed

Recommended Posts

I need some help with the following rank description:

Verw. Ob. Gefreiter (Sv.)

I understand the Ober Gefreiter part but what do the preceding "Verw." and the "(Sv.)" abreviations mean?

I posted this in another forum and learned that the "Verw." is Verwaltungs or supply but I still don't know what th "Sv." means. Any opinion anyone?

Huh! The printed line underneath says "Verwendung in Sonderdienst," so apparently "(Sv.)" is... "Sonderverwendung."

Seems rather pointless! :cheeky:

This level of "administration" usually seems to have been COOKS, from what little I've seen of Kriegsmarine junior ranks.
