D.R.K. Vorhelfer Deutsche Rotes Kreuz:
The wool DRK uniform tells her story displaying the Eiserne Kreuz II. Klasse ribbon, Wound Badge in Black, the Ost Front campaign ribbon as well as the Afrika Campaign Arrmmelstreifen. Worn with this Bluse is matching skirt, hose, black shoes and white nurse cap. When on duty she will wear the pinstriped cotton uniform with white or dark blue apron. Photographic evidence indicate a tropical uniform complete with Troppenhelm (sun-helmet) existed. Lower ranking male members of the organization were authorized to wear a was a blunt blade hewer style dagger with a saw-back blade. The unique design was two fold, intended to be a tool for the DRK members that would be useful in performing their duties in the field, and at the same time avoid being viewed as a weapon, as the International Red Cross prohibited the carry or use of weapons by those working under that banner. The DRK Hewer was authorized for wear in 1938 and was 15.8 inches in overall length with a 10.inch long blade and 5 inch long hilt. The hilt was unique in that the two scales (grip panels) were of different styles, with the obverse panel being checkered hard rubber and the reverse panel being smooth hard rubber.
