Army/Waffen-SS Field Police Gorget by Assmann. Great looking Army/Waffen-SS Field Police (Feldgendarmerie) Service Gorget.

This gorget first appeared in 1938. The field police (military police) performed such duties as traffic control, guarding of supply and ammo dumps and local patrol service. The Feldgendarmerie units ranged from company to battalion strength and served on all fronts from Europe to North Africa. The gorget was worn at all times while on duty except when combat operations made this impossible. The Feldgendarmerie also had a special cuffband, with the SS units getting their own style cuffband later in the war. The shield on this example is made of a non-magnetic metal and the chain is magnetic. This has all of the reveres wool and shows very little use. Marked “A” on the center reverse fitting. This maker has finished the shield and the chain in a matte-silver paint. Excellent plus. (6182by) LH11277
