Third and final pattern, (Circa September 1944-May 1945), slip on shoulder straps in reworked, green tinted, field-gray wool/rayon blend material with red rayon waffenfarbe piping to each. Both of the slip on retaining tongues are in the brown tinted, field-gray 44 wool/rayon material and both the bottoms of the straps and the tongues have a central, gray rayon reinforcement strip, machine stitched in place. 
On November 26TH 1938 the first pattern, pointed tip, shoulder straps without waffenfarben, (Branch of Service Color), 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-gray 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 third pattern shoulder straps remained basically the same as the second pattern shoulder straps but were of generally poorer construction using the newly introduced gray/brown fabric that was designated, field-gray 44 and the waffenfarben was visible on the bottoms.
