Hello,


Many question I have about the correctness of a dak uniform.
To start with is the afrikakorps cuff title.
Was it for any soldier? Or only officers?
From when it was issued?
Is the green outher line there to fold inside? Or also possible to be just not folded at the back, and just sew it on the uniform?
I read on the internet it should be sewn on the left arm, with most pictures and drawnings I see them on the right arm? Heigt about 14 to 15 cm?
And wich position the line afrikakorps should be exactly?


Hope someone has all the answers for me.


Regards,


Tim Jantzen

As for your questions:


Was it for any soldier? Or only officers? Both

From when it was issued? 1941 until 1943. From 1941 till mid late 1942 the cufftitle had an olive green color. The later pattern was executed on tan fabric. 

Is the green outher line there to fold inside? Or also possible to be just not folded at the back, and just sew it on the uniform? Both ways are shown on period photos.

I read on the internet it should be sewn on the left arm, with most pictures and drawnings I see them on the right arm? Heigt about 14 to 15 cm? No, on the left arm only the "Afrika" cufftitle was worn. The "Afrikakorps" should be sewn on the right arm. 

And wich position the line afrikakorps should be exactly? As you said, approximately 14-15cms from the cuff.
