BEVO Wuppertal


Explanation:
Wuppertal is the name of a German city; BeVo (or BEVO) is the name of a company that manufactured uniforms, cufftitles, etc. during the Third Reich.

The backing is the classic salt and pepper and both ends are sewn. One end has the writing BEVO WUPPERTAL (for the two companies that merged and the name of the city where the factory was located). This is a very choice and scarce cufftitle. www.therupturedduck.com/WebPages/Cloth/cloth.htm

A search on

will bring up a number of pages with military memorabilia and collector's items from the Third Reich.

Explanation:
BEVO

Although this designation is now applied to virtually all machine-woven insignia for German uniforms from WWII, the name originally referred specifically to the firm "Bandfabrik Ewald Vorsteher" in Wuppertal-Baren. These woven insignia are most often seen on German field caps and overseas caps.

One end has the writing BEVO WUPPERTAL (for the two companies that merged and the name of the city where the factory was located). This is a very choice and scarce cufftitle.
