Original German WWII Heer Army Cavalry Standard Bearer Sleeve Patch - Uniform Cutoff
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a superb BeVo-style embroidered German WWII Heer (Army) Cavalry Standard Bearer's Sleeve patch, which were worn by the official flag bearers of the unit. WWII was really the end of traditional Cavalry, and even in WWII most of the Cavalry units were later converted into other types of units during the war, so these patches are extremely rare.
These were originally machine embroidered onto a large roll, and cut off into rectangular sections. However, this example was cut off a uniform, so the original background fabric is now missing. It measures about 4 1/2"H x 4"W, and is very good condition, though it does show wear. The background is the correct Feldgrau (Field gray) color, with silver, black, and white thread used in the design. It shows a central Reichsadler (National Eagle) over oak leaves, with flags to either side. These have Gold-gelb (Golden Yellow) on the corners, the Waffenfabre (Corps Color) for Cavalry units in the German army.
The condition is quite good, though the more fragile Golden yellow threads have unfortunately work off a lot on the front of the badge, though they are still clearly shown on the rear.
A very rare Sleeve patch, ready to add to your collection and display!
