Gents,

Does anyone know exactly what these postwar German Police General Officer shoulder boards are? They are typical Polizei GO shoulder boards with green backing and gold and white cellon tops except for the red/black Vs in the white center cording. The red/black V stitching is what is throwing me off.

Hello ORPO in time of WW1 black and red chevrons were worn by officers of the state of Wuerttemberg, maybe your shoulder board refers to it.

Regards Thomas

If the colors are blue/red, then the board is for Meckenburg.
