Speaking of brown nebenfarbe these came in the mail :jumping: I have never seen a set of these to date. I have one shoulder board and as you know from above Roman has a single board as well. The Sutter boys might have some brown items but I dont feel like trolling their threads on WAF at the momment.

Only 2 career that had a light brown nebenfarbe:

Barracks Administrator (Heeresunterkunftsverwaltung);

and Teachers at Professional Schools (Professional School Service (Lehrpersonal an Heeres- und Wehrmachtfachschulen, Heeresfachschuldienst)) for non technical teachers.

The first only had a elevated/medium career levels, while the second had High career and elevated/medium career levels. So no guess work there.

:Cat-Scratch: Neato! I have a family group including partial award documents for WW1 Leutnant dR and later Fach-Studienrat Curt H?gel, at army Fachschule Verden/Aller in May 1939 and previously (1934) Leiter der Fachschule der Landespolizei in Bremen.

Never saw "his" insignia before! :cheers:

That is some really nice and RARE insignia!! :jumping:

I think that you may be onto something... The colors do look remarkably different shades of brown. It is possible that they represent two variables in dye lots for the same nebenfarbe but the variation is very drastic. Very interesting and desirable to me!! Nice job!

And just to close off the "Brown" file. Again a slightly different shade of brown. These could swing either way....Heeresunterkunftsverwaltung or Lehrpersonal an Heeres- und Wehrmachtfachschulen, Heeresfachschuldienst

I would get vol 1 next. Vol 3 pertains mainly to equipement and weapons. I will thumb through it again to be sure.

Hi guys,

I am new to this community, so please excuse me if I ask things that are already discussed.

I have several socalled Stellenbesetzungslisten from for example the Heeresgruppe Südukraine, the 2., 4., 8., and 9. Armee, as well as several Generalkommandos.

The regular ranks are not a problem for me to understand. However, the large amount of Wehrmachtbeamten, and all their fancy names are more difficult to understand.

I am trying to put a Stellengruppe to a specific name, and can not find all the things I want to.

For example, what's the difference between an Intendant and a Feldintendant? Does this have to do with the TSD-system? (I have to search the microfilm containing the Allgemeine Heeresmitteilungen as of 1944 to figure out what the old designations were, and what they became).

So, my question is: does anyone here have a chart of Beamten ranks?

TIA,

Piet Duits

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
