Deutsche Wehrmacht Armband

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis armband, woven in black on a heavy yellow fabric, is probably the most common wartime armband after the party political armband. It was produced in huge numbers in the last months of the war and issued to Volkstürm and other last ditch troops when no other uniforms were available. Usually you see non-combat “helpers” such as drivers, traffic control or flak helpers wearing it.
