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
