Hi. I am trying to identify this shoulderstrap. I know it's Reichbahn but I would like to find out rank and paygroup if possible. Would be grateful for any help.

 

Thanks

Saw them usually with not more than two stars.

I know that the reichsbahn of the gdr had shoulder boards like this with 3 stars - rank was Reichsbahn Oberassistent if I remember correctly.

Yes that’s what I found. I have only ever seen them with 2 before. I will see if I can find out about GDR ones. Thanks for that thought.

Hello Rohleder und Gefreiter, DDR Deutsche Reichsbahn , i think. During 1990 travelling from Koln to Berlin i had the ocasion of take a look to ex Deutsche Reichsbahn workers and officials and they weared the old shoulderstraps , but with the Soviet russian system . that is from one to four stars (pips) to denote specific rank. and the aluminium stars for lower ranks made in the DDR, are quite distinctive.

You remembered correctly Rohleder. I found them illustrated on the net and as you said rank was Reichsbahn Oberassistent.

Great stuff. Thanks

    • Well for a first finished painting that is a particularly fine work, well done I wish I could paint like that ! I really like the bust as well. My skills go as far as helping the kids paint their Warhammer figures. Although I think I am now more into it than they are, as I am finding it a great way to relax in the evening.
    • As some of you know I sculpt and paint miniatures. Not in the mood while under house arrest so I decided to have a bash at oil painting on canvas. Mostly done except for final touch ups and glazes. My first finished painting ever and 3rd ever attempt; based on a 200mm miniature bust by Alexandros Models (pictured). Michel Ney, Prince of the Moskowa, Duke of Elchingen. ”The Bravest of the Brave.” “Le Rougeaud.” Russia 1812  
    • 😄Very good!😄 The only real downside of this whole isolation thing is that I miss having kids still at home. We have grand kids but of course they can not come over nor can we visit and play with them. They are the only soft spot in my cynical personality. 😉 By the way, a group of geese is a gaggle, would a group of grandchildren be a mess? Thanks for your reply JohnF, it brings a much needed air of humour to the forum. Regards Brian  
    • I've been going through and rediscovering pieces in my collection.  I have also been helping my kids put together Legos.  This is the latest set.
    • Those are great thanks for adding them. Regards Brian
