Heinz Harmel´s collar patch

Post by Arto O » 15 Aug 2019 20:25

Hi,
What kind of collar patch Heinz Harmel is wearing? It seems to be a letter "A" with something.
Thanks
Arto

The "A" is for Ausbildungswesens staff ( Training )

Hello, Arto and von thoma

If you look closer, Harmel's collar patch appears to read "A 5" (or a similar number; at least I think that's a number)

It’s definitely a symbol and not a number. It would be worth posting this in the WAF or WRF to find out what it is?
