A very good example of a German Feldgendarmerie (Field Police) Armband in green cotton with printed Latin script and an off red coloured printed Feldgendarmerie property stamp.
Perhaps unissued, the Armband is of a basic construction and in very good condition.
Although a uniformed service, Feldgendarmerie personnel were authorized to enlist EM/NCOâ€™s from other branches of service to temporarily assist them in their policing duties. These men were supplied with an identifying armband for wear on the upper left sleeve of the field blouse or greatcoat. The armband was only worn during active policing duties and was to be returned to the Feldgendarmerie issuing authority on completion of the service.
