WWII German “Bahnhofswache” (Railway Station Guard) Armband-This interesting example has a yellow cloth field with the machine woven script “Bahnhofswache” (“Railway Station Guard”) in black cloth thread. These were used by members of the Armed Forces, including the Waffen-SS, to patrol and control Troop movement on railway stations of importance, especially at main line terminals. The ends are sewn together. Slight discoloration only. There is some damage to the bottom of the armband, which almost appears to be damage from heat. Priced to sell.
