Medical officer insignia

vodorosl,

There are several sources for the information that you seek. The 1999 two volume set of books from J?rgen Kraus has plates that show both the shoulder strap cyphers and the specialty shoulder strap devices (like the one you have shown and many others). These books are currently unavailable, but are supposed to be reprinted at some point. The regimental cyphers are shown in the "Handbook of the German Army" reprints, the Jan Kube books, Das Deutsche Heer, F?hrer durch Heer und Fl?tte and the various Ruhl uniform plates, some of which have been reprinted and are carried in stock by several militaria dealers. Finally, if you are interested, I can send you scans from any of the aforementioned books.

Regards,

Chip

PS Your ?skulapstab insignia looks to be from the pre-1918 era.

Chip, thank you for your response. If it's not too much trouble can you sent me a scan from any book that shows the specialty shoulder strap devices. I would greatly appreciate it - I sent you my email as a PM.

Yes, I don't understand J?rgen Kraus. He keeps producing new books, but I think it would be a lot cheaper to reissue a book that basically sold out in two years. There is a lot of pent up desire for this book (and why not, it's great) and I am sure he could sell a lot more. Time will tell. In the meantime, if you have any questions, just ask, I have a copy. :rolleyes:
