Nazi Germany: SHD Uniforms and Branch Badges

Badges and insignia for SHD (Security and Assistance Service)

SHD-Dienstkleidung.jpg

From left to right, first row: tunic, greatcoat, fatigue uniform
Second row: forage cap, forage cap fatigue, helmets
Third row: badge, belt
Fourth and fifth row are brassards with rank insignia
Sixth row: branch badges; Fire, Repair, Veterinary, Decontamination; Public Works Repair: Gas, Water, Sewage, Electricity
Seventh row: brassards for dispatch riders and signalmen (telephone)

I do not know the date of this chart, but it must be early since ranks are denoted by brassards instead of the epaulettes shown in the Encyclopedia (http://www.uniforminsignia.org/?option= ... esult=2196 )

I do not have a key to the rank titles, but there are nine of them, being the same number as the ranks with epaulettes; that is from Mann to Abteilungsführer.

Below is the later version with collar patches, epaulettes, badge over the right pocket, and cuff titles (also for LSW = air raid warning service). In addition to tunic, greatcoat and fatigue uniform, the air force jacket is in use. The branch badges have moved from the lower left sleeve, to the upper.

In 1942 the stationary SHD was transferred from the Air Ministry (RLM) to the police as Luftschutzpolizei, while the mobile SHD was transferred to the Luftwaffe.
