German TeNo – Technischen Nothilfe Cuff Title
TeNo – Technischen Nothilfe Cuff Title. Excellent example in the bevo weave, full 16 1/2 inches – 42 cm long – un-cut. For wear on the fatigue and work tunic.
The TeNo, Technischen Nothilfe, (Technical Emergency Corps), was originally established in September 1919, being comprised of trained voluntary civilian personnel to maintain and repair essential services in the event of a natural disaster or emergency. Many of its personnel were ex-service men and a large amount of them had some type of specialized technical training. TeNo was a civilian organization administered by the Minister of the Interior, until mid-1939 when it became an official State organization under control of the Police which in turn was controlled by the SS. With this change in status a small nucleus of salaried Officials were employed to run the organization.
During the war TeNo became more and more a para-military organization
with its direction being controlled by the Waffen-SS. When TeNo personnel were attached to army units for assistance they were issued with one of two distinctive cufftitles with one cufftitle being worked in bright silver/aluminum threads for wear on the field-grey service tunic and the other cufftitle worked in matte silvery/grey threads for wear on the fatigue and work tunic.
