The insignia consists of a single, waffle patterned, gilt wire chevron machine stitched on an inverted, triangular field-grey wool base wit a single gold pip. The coloration of this example indicates it was intended for wear on a field-grey uniform.
The Kriegsmarine adopted rank chevrons for all Enlisted ranks in 1933. The chevrons were worn on the upper left sleeve of most garments, with a few exceptions and the base color of the chevron was to match the uniform it was worn on. The Kriegsmarine rank chevrons underwent four modifications between 1933 and 1940, in an unsuccessful attempt to conform to the army EMís rank chevrons. Of Note: Quite often the rank chevrons were combined with the individuals career insignia. This example was first introduced in 1933 and signified the rank of Obermatrose, until January 1938 when it was allocated for the rank of Gefreiter and remained in use for the duration of the war.
