Armbands were usually used to identify a soldier’s special duty position or function. It would normally only be worn in the carrying out of said duty or function. It could also be used to identify a civilian as an official employee of the army.
Most armbands were worn on the left upper sleeve, but there were exceptions to this rule.
Field Police (Feldpolizei) wore a tan-coloured armband with orange letters and an orange police insignia. Usually there is a black ink seal of the issuing unit as well.
