Outstanding WWII Era German NS-RKB MEMBER’S Medals, Cuff Title, And Arm Band Certified.  All members of the NS-RKB wore a cufftitle on the lower left sleeve. There were three levels to the cufftitle rank structure. Cufftitles with gold threads for leaders, silver/aluminum thread for staff and members of the advisory groups and finally silver/grey threads for association members of general members. Machine woven “West” cufftitle in silver/grey thread on a dark blue/black background with crossed swords to either side of the script. Bordered on both the top and button in silver/grey threads. Cufftitle is full length an uncut, approximately 39cm. Plus a A 1938 pattern armband as worn on the lower right sleeve of the service tunic by NS-RKB enlisted ranks. Very deep navy blue cloth armband with machine woven NS-RKB insignia. Insignia consists of a white bordered, red shield with white bordered, black Iron Cross with white circular centerpiece featuring a black, canted swastika to center. Insignia is machine stitched to armband. And a 3 place medal bar including The Cross of Merit for War Aid was introduced in December of 1916 by King Wilhelm II, who, after rendering it to himself, made the first award of this medal to Field Marshall von Hindenberg. A Combatants Cross of Honor Instituted in July of 1934 by von Hindenburg (resulting in its erroneous designation as the “Hindenburg Cross”) to recognize service in WWI. It ranked beneath bravery awards but above other service and campaign awards. and lastly a Nazi (NSDAP) 25 year Long Service medal On January 30th, 1938, Hitler instituted the Faithful Service Decoration, in three classes, to recognize long-serving civil servants and public works personnel. The decorations were intended to be an incentive for the civilian population to foster workplace loyalty and create a stable civil service. The three classes of the decoration consisted of the special class for fifty years of continuous service with the same employer in the free economic system, the first class decoration for forty years of service, and the second class for twenty-five years service. All three classes followed the same basic design, with minor variations. A fantastic grouping from a NS-RKB MEMBER who was a WWI Veteran all came from the same person.
