GERMAN WWI MACHINE GUNNERS ARM BADGE EMBROIDERED PATTERN.
We have never come across one of these pieces of insignia before in officers quality embroidery. It is obvious that in WWII there were embroidered versions notably of Luftwaffe aviation badges, which was a follow on from some of the very few insignias of WWI being fashioned in the same manner. Superb quality with the outer band, which simulates the belt of the MG08 machine gun, picked out in silver and tan. The MG08 machine gun all completed in silver with the flash hider and a small section near the breech picked out in yellow. One moth nip just below the gun otherwise perfect with stitches still remaining where removed from an officers tunic.
