Description

A set of RLB Armbands. The Reichsluftbund (National Air Raid Protection League) was an organization in Nazi Germany in charge of air raid precautions in residential areas and among smaller businesses.  The massive force was mostly volunteers, but there was a training cadre and permanent officers who oversaw the national program.  The dark blue armband is a multi-piece construction specimen, and was probably used by a higher-ranking member of the organization.  The lighter blue would have been worn by a lower level member.  Expert machine quality stitching of the RLB logos.
