BAHNHOFSWACHE PARTEI-BEREITSCHAFT ARMBAND!

Product Description: This Bahnhofswache Armband is in excellent condition. It’s a rare armband, that has gotten increasingly harder to find. This pattern of armband was worn during WWII by German uniformed personnel assigned to security duty at train stations. It is made of white fabric, with the word “Bahnhofswache” (railroad station guard) boldly screened in black Gothic script. The upper and lower edges of this armband are finished with woven edging, a typical trait of original Bevo armbands. The reverse is neatly sewn together with white machine stitching. with "Partei-Bereitschaft" screened in black. This Bahnhofswache Armband remains in great shape, with bright original color, a surprise on the eagle screened stamp, and only extremely light age toning. It has a striking look, and displays great.




Historical Description: Nearly every military, civil, political and paramilitary organization in existence during the Third Reich used armbands. Armbands were worn on military and civilian uniforms and also on civilian clothes, from suit jackets to work clothing. They were used to denote membership in organizations, to indicate a specific role or function of the bearer, and as insignia of rank. Many organizations would change the design of their armbands over time, which added to the variety produced. These were manufactured in countless variations, ranging from simple printed bands to elaborately hand-embroidered pieces of the highest quality. Some Nazi armbands were worn by all members of large organizations and were made by the millions. Others were intended for use at a specific time and place and were unique. Many types were made in very limited numbers. Some bore metal insignia or special identifiers that indicated the wearer’s rank, unit affiliation, or nationality. Armbands were sometimes but not always marked with ink stamps by the issuing authorities.

This has been in our family since the 60's. It has a piece of masking tape on it denouncing what it is.
