Gary,

I still enjoy looking at that Admin tunic with DW cuff from time-to-time! I just might have to add an admin tunic to the collection some day! Not sure if I said it before, although congrats on the elusive Admin visor and the rank straps!

About all I have are a few pieces of misc. insignia, somewhere!

Sorry to have been absent for so long: my interest in the Polizei is as strong as ever (and work on volume 3 in my Bender series continues) but sickness in the family has kept me busy with less plearurable pursuits.

Just a quickie on the Verwaltungspolizei: I have a note that officials with the rank of Polizeirat and above wore bright red as an additional colour (Nebenfarbe) on the shoulder straps. Can anyone confirm this, and give the source?

Many thanks and best wishes to all.

Hello,

According to Deuster from 1938-1942 the lower and middle grade ranks wore the double red/gray on their shoulder boards, higher grades only gray. I think the red was dropped altogether in 1944. Here is the German, perhaps your reading is different.
