That photo is for a LW Sonderfuhrer, NCO level(Oberfeldwebel). The shoulder boards are very strange though!! Very interesting photo!! Anything written on the back?

Yeah, they almost look like LSW boards but the colors are skewed dark/light/dark, and the slides don't make sense! Interesting photo :cheers:

That was my thought exactly. LSW or maybe TENO like boards. Perhaps they were improvised for the tunic?

Hi Paul and Laurence,

Thanks for the link to the other thread it was very interesting and I see now that the shoulder boards looks strange.

The pic has something written on the back, I don?t have it with me now but I will look when I get home again.

I think it was a date and probably name on the man.

Regards Christer

That is right. He is a Specialist Official as well. He is of the elevated level, ranked equivalent to a Leutnant.
