WW2 GERMAN CUFF TITLE AFRIKA KORPS
The Afrika korps cuff title was officially introduced on July 18th, 1941, for wear by members of the, DAK, Deutsches Afrika korps, (German Africa Corps). On November 4th, 1941 regulations dictated that issue of the Afrikakorps cuff title was to be extended to include the "Afrika" armoured group. Wear of the cuff title was permitted when personnel were on furlough in Europe but when they transferred out of the North African theater the cuff title was to be removed. Of Note: With the introduction of the "Afrika" campaign cuff title on January 15th, 1943, the Afrikakorps cuff title was ordered removed. Although the Afrika cuff title was a campaign cuff title most personnel who had worn the Afrika korps cuff title would have been eligible for the Afrika cuff title.
Machine woven cuff title features a horizontal, dark green, cotton center stripe with diagonally ribbed, horizontal, bright silver/aluminum flat-wire edge trim and narrow, horizontal, tan rayon borders to both the top and bottom edges. The dark green center stripe features machine woven, block, Latin script, "Afrika korps", in bright silver/aluminum flat-wire threads.
Note* There are fake cuff titles around and this one has been thoroughly checked by me and comes with a full money back guarantee of its originality. Super nice example.
