The functions of the RZM were not only to procure and distribute items to Party formations, but also to approve chosen designs and to act as a quality control supervisor to ensure items manufactured for the Party met required specification and were standardized.

The development of camouflage clothing and equipment had began in the German army in WWI, and continued through the Weimar Reichswehr era and on into the Third Reich. The geometric splinter pattern was developed in the early 1930's and was first adopted for use with the quarter shelter/poncho in late 1931. Further developments in 1943 modified the original splinter pattern by softly blurring the distinct geometric pattern and slightly altering the coloration. This modified camouflage pattern was designated the Tan/water camouflage pattern and was once again altered in 1944 by an even stronger blurring of the distinct geometric pattern during the war. Although the Luftwaffe original utilized the army’s camouflage patterns they also developed their own camouflage patterns which were very similar with minor variations. Further camouflage pattern development continued through-out the war and additional subtly different patterns were created with the intent to equip all personnel with the same camouflage pattern but this was never achieved. The Luftwaffe field divisions were rapidly mobilized from Luftwaffe ground personnel in late 1942 and early 1943, to replace the massive loses of men on the Eastern front. Due to the lack of training and poor performance in the field, of the twenty-two divisions formed, seventeen were either destroyed or disbanded before the end of the war. When the Luftwaffe field divisions were being formed the need for proper camouflage garments was raised and a design for an inexpensive, easy to manufacture field jacket, suitable for ground combat, was proposed and accepted in late 1942.

WWII Nazi German RAD Twelve Year Long Service Medal Dienstauszeichnungen für den RAD
Item #: VF4449

Click image to enlarge
Men's, third class, die struck alloy award with a silver wash, for twelve years service. The award is in the form of a vertical oval with an embossed oak-leaf wreath to the outside edges encompassing a smooth background field with embossed, inverted spade head with central, canted swastika, flanked by sheaves of wheat to the obverse. The reverse of the award also has the embossed oak-leaf wreath to the outside edges encompassing a smooth background field with embossed Gothic script, "Für treue dienst im Reichsarbeitsdienst", (For Loyal Service in the National Labor Service). The ribbon suspension loop and ring are both intact. Comes complete with its original moire cornflower blue ribbed, rayon ribbon with a Wehrmacht eagle attached to the ribbon indicating service in the army. Nice clean example.
The RAD, Reichsarbeitsdienst, (National Labor Service), was formed in June 1935 by consolidating earlier male labor services into a single organization under control of the NSDAP. In April 1936 the Frauenarbietsdienst, (Women’s Labor Service), was assimilated into the RAD as the RADwJ, Reichsarbeitsdienst der weiblichen Jugend, (National Labor Service for Young females). On its official formation RAD service became compulsory, with all German citizens between 19 and 25 years of age required to enlist for a six month term. The RAD and the RADwJ were administered by a core of full time, permanent employees. On January 30TH 1938, Hitler instituted the National Labor long service award, in four classes, in recognition of honorable long service for the cadre personnel of both the RAD and the RADwJ. The awards came in two distinct designs with one design for men and the other design for women. The four classes of the award consisted of the first class medal for twenty-five years of service, the second class medal for eighteen years of service, the third class medal for twelve years of service and the fourth class medal for fours years of service.

Nazi German 1931 SA Treffen Braunschweig Badge Abzeichen des SA Treffens Braunschweig 1931
Item #: VF4447

Click image to enlarge
The 1931 SA Braunschweig Treffen badge was originally designed as a day badge sold at the actual event. Hitler audaciously brought a larger contingent of SA to the event than was anticipated and dominated the event. As a commemoration, the badge was elevated to a 'traditions' award after 1933 and was allowed to be worn by those having taken part. This is a stellar example of the RZM solid version. The details are superb, with clearly defined oakleaf border, early NSDAP eagle, and crisp lettering. The finish looks as super as it did 70+ years ago. Still bears the original pin and catch. Below this is the RZM logo and code 1/35 which indicates Wachtler & Lange of Mittweida 'Ges Gesch'.
As with most rallies and events of the period the SA rally hosted by SA-Gruppe Nord at Brunswick on October 17TH and 18TH 1931, issued a badge to commemorate the event. These badges were typical of the period and were normally cheaply made and only worn during the event. On November 6TH 1936 Hitler elevated this rally badge to the status of an National honor award, as the third NSDAP rally badge to gain such a distinction. After the badge’s elevation to National status it was manufactured again with slight variations to the original rally badges.
