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.

I only found this one by luck. I remeber helping to Id it, however I thought it was in a private collection. I happened to be looking for photo's on ebay and stumbled into it.

A rare photo showing a Beamte a.K. Kriegsverwaltungsassistent (Oberfeldwebel) wearing the 1939 regulation Schulterschnur.

Thanks for looking

Larry

Now that is an early one Larry.

I was asking earlier if you were able to find the collar tabs that went with the dark blue nebenfarbe boards.

Did you ever get those rose pink insignia?

Yes there was a Rosa career for Clothing Depots, though there was no höherer Dienst. It switched to the standard branch (White) sometime in 1936. Dave Suter has a set of boards and tabs near the start of his "Old Sarges" thread on WAF.

    • 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.
