Shoulderboards: Police and Related Agencies

Along with the armed forces (NVA), the East German police agencies continued the German tradition of showing unit identification and rank by means of stiffened cloth boards worn on the shoulderboards of tunics and jackets.

Police and NVA shoulderboards differed considerably, however, in terms of design and other features. A further complication is that most but not all police agencies conformed to the same design. The variations will become apparent in the listings that follow.

* All shoulderboard prices are per pair.
* Shoulderboard prices are less than current replacement cost in Germany.
* Gowen Militaria has in stock shoulderboards not listed in this section. Please ask if you do not see listed below particular shoulderboards.
