Ranks of the German Wehrmacht administration

Wehrmacht officials were wearing slightly modified Wehrmacht uniforms, with a similarly structured ranking. The uniform cloth pads were dark green. During the war, the so-called special leaders were added. These were civilians who were integrated into the Wehrmacht for a special task (eg interpreting) as officers (in the rank of lieutenant, captain or major). Their epaulettes were almost the same as those of the corresponding officers, but they wore altered, non-collared collar levels.


Army officials

Civil servants of the German Army wore dark green as gun colors and were distinguished according to the different areas in which they worked. Each area was identified by an additional color. She piped around the dark green collar and cuffs and served as a pad for the dark green shoulder straps. These wore the letters "HV" (Army Administration). For non-commissioned officers, reserve officers and generals they were made of white metal. Active officers from the lieutenant to the colonel received golden finishes. The following additional colors were distinguished:

- Crimson: officials in the political administration area
- Carmine: officials in bars
- Light blue: Military judiciary officials
- Light green: officials of the pharmacy
- White: Paymaster
- Black: Technical officials
- Yellow: Remonten officials
- Orange: Wehr Replacement
- Light brown: non-technical officials of teaching staff at army schools
