Afrika Ärmelstreifen

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis cuff title, “Afrika”, was instituted in on 15 January 1943 as a replacement for the AFRIKAKORPS cuff title.  This was intended as a campaign honor, making the cuff title the equivalent of a campaign medal.  The AFRIKA cuff title was awarded for at least siz months of service in North Afrika.  These were also worn on the left sleeve of the service and dress uniforms.  These were extremely fine quality cuff titles, hand embroidered on soft Khaki wool.
