    So they used the same collar tabs for gehobener and mittlerer Dienst?

    The standard book "Die Deutsche Wehrmacht - Uniformierung und Ausrüstung" Band I - Das Heer, by Adolf Schicht & John R. Angolia, on page 343 says:

    Beamte des mittleren Dienstes im Offizierrang: They collar tabs identical to those of Beamter des gehobenen Dienstes. To distinguish these two, per Vfg.v. 10.4.1940 (HV 40B, Nr.269) new collar tabs were introduced: hand embroidered and identical but significantly more narrow.

    Beamte im Unteroffizierrang: collar tabs of woven fabric, and greyish white or grey.

    Thank you WTH for this very useful link!

    This is by far the most useful and comprehensive outline I have ever seen, about this complex matter (to my opinion).

    Still I would advice, for a deeper insight, the source I have mentioned above, because it adds dates and other relevant background information, if the book is still available...

    Personal details & Units. He served with Verpflegungsamt 4 up until at least 16th Oct 1942 (verified by a slip of paper in the SB for the issue of a pistol with that units FpNr) but obviously managed to leave that unit before it was destroyed at Stalingrad.

    Hi Paul

    At this time that is the best I can do with it. I took it from the advert that was on the website I bought it off of. It hits the mail today and is coming from Florida so it should not take too long to get here. I also believe he was an Officer aspirant. And yes they were allowed the elevated grade tabs prior to promotion.

    Finally scored a Soldbuch, Kevin (Hucks216) has been kind enough to send me some links on these, the first one I sent my money and I am still waiting - 6 months later - I sent an email to the owner asking to confirm my shipping address but never recieved a reply.....it was a sweet one to an Unteroffizier.
