German WWII NSDAP ranks

Post  wfrad on Thu 03 Nov 2011, 10:46 am

Too try and get things going again here's a chart for the basic ranks for the NSDAP post 1939..
Afraid mediafire is refusing to allow any link to be placed into the forum page, yet again you will have to put-up with the adverts, sorry!!

NSDAP rank 1933

Post  wfrad on Fri 04 Nov 2011, 10:15 am

Illustrations tend to be very basic for the 1933 ranks.
Some have the shoulder cords described as twisted cord while others show the plain army type cord, so I've shown both types of cord.
For example Davis is in favour of twisted cord whilst Kahl shows plain, decide for yourselves.
At best the chart gives some idea of the early NSDAP ranks which only lasted for a very short period until 1934.

Doesn't quit compare with what I've done but further detailed illustrations are hard to find, most are post 1934..

Below is the list of ranks from Kahl's Uniforms and badges of the Third Reich: NSDAP.

Blockwart single silver braid on bright brown fabric, edged front and bottom with silver collar cord.

Zellenwart as Blockwart with additional braid.

Ortsgruppenleiter silver embroidery with red stripes on brown fabric with silver cord collar edging, also silver cord shoulder strap with on knot.

Kreisleiter as Ortsgruppenleiter but with an extra knot on the shoulder strap.

Gauleiter gold with orange embroidery with red stripes set onto a light red patch with orange cord collar edging, shoulder cord gold, with a single knot set onto light red strap.

Landesinspektor as Gauleiter, but shoulder straps set onto crimson strap.

Reichsinspektor as Landesinpektor but two instead of one and also two knots on shoulder cord.

Reichsorganisationsleiter as collar and shoulder badges as Reichsinspektor but with three inverted gold braid chevrons on the left lower arm.

NSDAP 1937

Post  wfrad on Sun 06 Nov 2011, 9:33 am

This Chart shows the ranks as by their appointments regarding command level, taken from the 1937 NSDAP manual.
Titles and rank badges could vary, for example the Hauptstellenleiter insignia appear to change between Reich and Gau levels.

Norton and Macafee I stay well clear of, too complex to set-up [for my single grey cell] without them taking charge of everything.
I'm getting problems with Mediafire myself when posting links. pale
