BeVo 'Slowakei' Volunteer Sleeve Shield


WH (Heer) BeVo woven sleeve-shield as intended for a volunteer within the 'Slowakei' Legion (Ärmelschild für Freiwillige Slowaken). An identifying sleeve shield for members of the slovakian legion was introduced. The slovakian sleeve shield is showing the coat of arms of slovakia consisting of a silver-white double cross standing on the middle peak of a dark blue mountain consisting of three peaks. The double cross is a symbol of its Christian faith and the hills represent three symbolic mountain ranges: Tatra, Fatra and Matra (in Hungary). The shield is executed in the neat so-called BeVo weave style on a field-grey linnen background. There is some minor damage. This is one of the harder to find Wehrmacht volunteer shields. Rare original BeVo Eastern volunteer insignia in good unissued condition!
