Collection of Nazi pennants, banner and armbands.
This armband was issued to ordinary members of the Reichsluftschutzbund [National Air Defense League].
"Kampfbinde" essentially means "fighting armband." This design was created in 1920 and pre-dates the brownshirt uniform of the NSDAP. The design could also be replicated in various qualities of material depending on what a party member could afford.
