Question re: Heer Standard Sleeve Shield

Recommended Posts

Wondering what unit this shield ( Orange) represents.Several firms that reproduce these say "Recruiting",but somehow this just doesn't seem right to me.Does anyone know for sure?

Hi Snoman,

 

Using Brian Leigh Davis's book "Badges & Insignia of the Third Reich" it shows this badge as a Flag Bearer's Insignia. The Picture in his book on Plate 62 item 2 is more yellow than yours but that may be due to the printing. This item is identified on Page 194 as Jager (rifle) and Gebirgsjager (Mountain Troops) units.

 

Hope this helps.

Ris
