The people’s army, Hitler called them. These were armband for the German civilians who got called up into war in 1945 to defend Germany against the invadors. Many old and very young men were called upon action, most of them did not even receive a uniform, just an armand like this and a panzerfaust or a gun. This is a very nice worn example. Very thin cotton armband with printed text on it. The botton has been folded and stitched together. Great armband with an amazing history!
