The Allgemeine-SS, (General-SS), was originally formed in May 1923 as the Stosstrupp Adolf Hitler (Shock Troops Adolf Hitler), and was redesignated Schutzstaffel, (Protection Squad), in April 1925 with the official acceptance of the name verified on the second anniversary of the failed Munich "Beer-Hall" Putsch on November 9TH 1925. On January 6TH 1929 Heinrich Himmler was appointed as Reichsführer-SS, (National Leader {of the} SS), and on July 20TH 1934 shortly after the, June 30TH 1934, purge of the SA, Sturm Abteilung, (Storm Troopers) on the "Night of the Long Knives", the SS was rewarded by Hitler by being granted the status of an independent organization under direct control of the NSDAP, Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, (National Socialist German Worker’s Party). The first pattern SS sleeve eagle was officially introduced in May 1936 although photographic evidence indicates that it was in use as early as the summer of 1935. Shortly after its official introduction the eagle underwent minor modifications resulting in the second pattern that was worn for the duration of the war. These second pattern eagles were originally issued in a hand embroidered version for Officers ranks and a machine embroidered version for EM/NCO’s until a machine woven version was introduced in 1939
