Various Kriegsmarine insignias from LST-291 vet

Post by 24th_infantry » 03 Sep 2019 14:40

I'm picking up a LST Navy grouping. Aside from the veteran's uniforms, some of the items are Kriegsmarine insignias. I do not know a whole lot about this area but I believe some are from a signalman but I'm unsure of the rest. Any help is appreciated and I hope you all enjoy!

24th_Infantry,
KM dress oval rate for P.O. Signalman.
KM lg. Anchor device for P.O. Boatswain.
KM gold wreaths for P.O. Visor hats (2).
KM small anchor devices for P.O. Shoulder straps- (Blitz-radio; anchor-Boatswain; Gear-Engineer)
KM small Gear devices- Officers shoulder board devices for engineer.
KM pips- rank "stars/pips" for shoulder straps.
KM gold cuff braid
KM EM/NCO collar tabs- pair, for field uniform (Coastal Artillery). These should NOT have the pips or anchor devices.

Hope you can figure which is what.... Fairly self explanatory.
