    Why is a Kriegsmarine Coast Artillery sleeve badge on a German artillery NCO's parade uniform?

    Sorry, about that it was my mistake, it looks like a Kriegsmarine CA sleeve badge...

    It is actually a Heer Artillery Proficiency sleeve badge.

    So this is actually a parade uniform? That probably explains the cermonial parade dagger that was with this i'm guessing... Thank you

    I have a dagger also (pics) other thread... Does the portpees go with the dagger and shouldn't be on the coat?

    Those are not blitz badges...

    Those are the usual parade uniform NCO collar tabs, and cuff facings(although the cuff facings look a little odd). The cuffs were known as Swedish Cuffs.

    You can see various paradr uniforms here.

    Thank you very much Takao... I"m going to print out some information from here and research so her family can understand more than just a uniform and dagger... He really never talked about much details of events that happen. So all they are left with are his medals (which we have documents on those) but this dagger and uniform I'm going to research. thank you
