By our dear friend fleetadmiral came to me with an idea.fleetadmiral found error on the side of the German Navy.I have assumed the thing and studied my documents on this subject.I noticed this alternative carrying modes and temporal "overlaps" on.
The badge of the sailors "Gefreiter-Stabsgefreiter" were worn in a form 1933-1935.1935 were this changed.From 1935, both versions were worn! Why? All the sailors were recruited after 31.03.1934 got the new.The others kept their.So two carrying methods at the same time.Then do the same with the ensigns.Regular narrow silver cords were carried on the shoulders.
Two or without stars.But there was also an unofficial version with blue or white backing.
I also recall the graphics of our dear friend Dmitry came to mind.It shows the insignia of the Russian Civil War.In this period there were many alternatives, improvised and Curiosities.
Shock Division of Kornilov - Dmitry shows the regular badge.
But there were still some with skull, with artillery insignia, pioneers, etc. ...
Czechoslovak Legion Also here a lot more is known,branch insignia,branch colors and alternative.
Baltic country weir,etc.etc.
So I had the idea, "alternative sites" as a supplement to the respective countries.
fleetadmiral and Dmitry are listed here as an example.They were the reasons for my idea.There are surely many other examples that justify "alternative site".
I ask you now, "what do you think of this idea?"
Best regards , Mario
P.S.: to Dmitry,would not that be a fine thing to supplement your drawings with these alternatives?
