When my mom and dad married in June, 1944, dad's shoulderboards did not have the green cord nor did his collar tabs have the white cord. He did not transfer to the TSD until August, 1944. Do you know when these changes took place?

I posted photos earlier.

This is a work in progress. I have wanted to post this for quite some time but was always waiting for another piece to arrive, at that rate I will never get it done, so I have decided to start now.

Was not commenting on the board shown...No they used slides as seen in the piccie yellow for officers, nor would they have the Veterinary serpent. Are you back home now?

A.Schlicht / J.R.Angolia writes in his book that there were violations.

I can supply images from the book.

Hi Larry,

I am still stationed on my ship. I am just able to log on a bit more, for now. I have another year here in CA. Who knows from there. My retirmenet from the military has been delayed because of the crappy economy. Maybe I can pick up a couple more paygrades in the meanwhile. I still love hte service, so no biggie for me.

So those boards posted by Roman are definitely LSW/SHD. I would love it to have one, as it is missing from my collection. Nice score Roman!

I have seen a lot of lined beamte shoulder cords. They did not follow the rules much for some reason. Since they were not military personnl, they were no held accountable to the same standards...

Maybe it Beamte?

This is a shoulderboard for a Zollanwaerter (Landzoll). If the dark green stripes were thinner than the silver ones, this would be a Finanzanwaerter (Landzoll). However, as far as I can see they are of equal width. But it is definitely Landzoll.

A couple of Sonderfuhrer items - firstly a KvK II Kl mit Schwertern citation to a Sonderfuhrer of Feldeisenbahn-Betriebsamt 3 and signed by Generalleutnant Gercke...

Could someone provide a systematic description of the collar tabs? From what I've been able to gather, they looked as follows.

Höherer Dienst


Gehobener Dienst


Mittlerer Dienst


Einfacher Dienst


Is this correct?

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
