Later, second pattern, (circa May 1940-1945), field-gray wool construction, slip on shoulder straps with grass green rayon waffenfarbe piping. The bottoms of the shoulder straps and the slip on tongues are also constructed in field-gray wool and the slip on tongues have a gray rayon blend reinforcement panel machine stitched to the reverse. Both straps has a 15th regimental cypher slides.
On November 26TH 1938 the first pattern, pointed tip, shoulder straps without waffenfarben, (Branch of Service Color), piping, utilized by EM/NCO’s were replaced with a rounded tip shoulder strap that included the branch of service waffenfarben. Originally these second pattern straps were manufactured in blue/green badge cloth until regulations in May 1940 altered their construction to field-grey wool. These second pattern shoulder straps were worn for the duration of the war although a third and final pattern was introduced in September 1944. The different branches of service within the German army were allocated a specific, identifying, waffenfarbe, (Branch of Service Color), with grass green being chosen for Panzer Grenadier, (Armored Infantry), personnel in July 1942, which was displayed as piping on the shoulder straps.
