    Hello all,

    after a long time of absence i´ll be back with a question.
    In the pic you can see the insignias of an Stabsfeldwebel from the para´s.
    I wonder what the left collar tab is meaning? The right one has four wings and the left three wings and a bar.
    Any guess?
    Thanks in advance

    I'm thinking it is a fourth "bird", but there is a wrinkle in the material so that the bird is almost flat, hence appearing as a "bar."

    I agree. I think we are seeing the edge of that wing which gives the appearance of a bar.

    While I can't help with the collar tab, it's good to see you around, Ulrich. Hope you continue to provide great questions and information.

    Hey all,
    thank you for the answers but to me it looks like two small bars. Maybe you are right with it, i can´t get any information about it.
    Lou, i try to do so, thank you!
