Kriegsmarine Adjutant Aiguillette (Field-Grey Uniform)
Estimated market value:
The headgear, uniforms, and insignia worn by members of the Kriegsmarine were based upon the designs utilized by the Kaiserliche Marine and the Reichsmarine. The official regulations governing the uniforms of the Reichsmarine were issued on April 5, 1921, and they were embraced, with a few alterations, as the Kriegsmarine uniforms in 1935. New guidelines concerning rank insignia were issued in 1936.
The Adjutant’s Aiguillettes were worn by the assistants of Naval Attaches, and the Adjutants of high ranking Kriegsmarine personnel, such as Commanders, Admirals, and Captains.
These aiguillettes were worn on the blue uniform and the field-grey uniform. The assistants of Naval Attaches wore their aiguillettes concurrently with their Naval Attache. The Kriegsmarine Adjutants primarily wore their aiguillettes when they were on active duty, and also when they were ordered to while fulfilling their daily duties.
The aiguillettes worn on the blue uniform feature gold-coloured cords and were worn with the blue service attire, all blue evening attire, the formal blue attire, and the white summer attire.
The aiguillettes worn on the field-grey uniform feature matte silver-coloured (aluminum) cords and were worn with the field-grey field attire, the field-grey service attire, and the tropical brown, field blouse.
The top of the aiguillette was attached to the garment, via a loop attachment or button, under the shoulder board, and the button was generally attached to the second button from the top; although variations are known.
