I am in the process of turning out some German tags for our local FJ group, but I need some examples on how their tags were punched - i.e. did it follow the same pattern as the Heer, or did they have a different style? Could anyone please point me in the direction of photos of actual LW/FJ tags, or any relevant reading material on the matter?

Thanks.

cant remember where I was told this, so it might be rubbish, but the fallschirmjäger had the blood group on the tag as well

Here is a tag from a Luftwaffe soldier serving at a Munitions Lager
with a reserve LW Field Regiment at a town called "Kittlitztreben",
his number and blood group are also on the tag.

When you were transferred to a front line unit, you kept the original
tag you were issued regardless which Unit you were sent to, hence
alot of tags with the Ersatz (reserves) stamping were worn by men
serving at the front.

Actually those tags were issued to civilians working there. It isn't a military tag.
