BACKGROUND: Cufftitles bearing Göring’s name can be traced back to December 1933 with the introduction of the "L.P.G. General Göring" cufftitle issued to the recently renamed Landes Polizei Gruppe Wecke z.b.V, to Landes Polizei Gruppe General Göring. In September 1935 Landes Polizei Gruppe General Göring was transferred from control of the Police to control of the Luftwaffe and was renamed, Regiment General Göring which resulted in a "General Göring" cufftitle being introduced in March 1936. In May 1942 a final pattern cufftitle bearing Göring’s name was introduced for wear by all ranks of personnel serving with Reinforced Regiment (mot.) Hermann Göring. The first issue of the Hermann Göring cufftitles were rendered in Gothic script that was soon changed to the block letter Latin script. The Hermann Göring cufftitles differentiated rank groups with a machine embroidered version in silver/grey threads for EM/NCO’s with NCO ranks having the addition of Russian braid trim while Officers ranks cufftitles were produced in hand embroidered silver/aluminum wire threads also with Russian braid trim. Of Note: The Reinforced Regiment (mot.) Hermann Göring was upgrade to Brigade status in July 1942 and to Divisional status in October of that year, and personnel retained wear of the Hermann Göring cufftitle to the end of the war.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Final pattern, (circa May 1942-May 1945), deep, navy blue, doeskin wool construction cufftitle with machine embroidered, block letter, Latin script, "Hermann Göring" in light, silver/grey, rayon threads. The cufftitle is border at both top and bottom edges in silver/grey Russian braid, signifying NCO’s ranks from Unteroffizier to Stabsfeldwebel inclusively. The cufftitle has the typical, opened back, construction with the top and bottom edges folded over to the interior and a handstitched, vertical seam to the reverse. The cufftitle has a loosely woven, protective, black fabric backing to the reverse of the embroidered script. Super nice condition!
