Officer’s with General ranks, Generalmajor, Generalleutnant, General der Flieger, etc, utilize a white base on their shoulder boards as opposed to the branch of service waffenfarbe utilized by lower ranks.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Sew on shoulder boards consists of three interwoven strands of Russian braiding with a central bright, silver/aluminum braid flanked by dual gilt wire braids mounted on a white wool base. Double rank pips. Nice!
