History


The SS adopted career & trade badges in the early 1930s to distinguish personnel who had successfully completed SS-affiliated training courses and had reached a certain level of proficiency in a trade, skill, or function. In addition, a similar insignia could also signify that an individual had previously been a member of a different organisation.

The majority of career and trade badges were worn by both the Allgemeine-SS and the Waffen-SS, although there are examples that were worn by only one branch.

The trade insignia are in the form of black, diamond-shaped cloth insignia. Officer grade diamonds were embroidered with aluminium wire, while Non-Commissioned Officer (NCO) and Enlisted Men (EM) diamonds were embroidered with silver-grey thread. Some examples of Officer grade sleeve diamonds are piped with twisted aluminium cord.

The insignia were worn on the lower sleeve and they were placed 3.5 cms above the cuff title.

The Administrative Services insignia was introduced in February of 1938. It was issued to graduates of the SS Administrative School and to individuals who had completed 5 years of administrative service with the SS by April 1, 1939.

The insignia features an eight-pointed star.
