GD79 SS Sleeve Shield for Italian Volunteers

GD79 SS Sleeve Shield for Italian Volunteers

This sleeve shield was worn by Italian volunteers in the Waffen-SS.  It depicts the Italian fasces with a yellow border on a black wool shield. Italian volunteers served principally in the 29th Waffen-SS division, ( “Italian Nr. 1″ ) .

This is the standard Dachau produced variety, which is machine embroidered on black wool.

GI's brought back many examples of mint unissued SS insignia from the SS supply depots at Dachau, This is one of them. It has been glued into a veteran's scrap book and retains some glue and paper on the back from the scrap book.
