RARE, ORIGINAL, Nazi Reichsarbeitsdienst (RAD, "Reich Labour Service") Officer’s / Leader’s Dagger By Wusthof, Solingen With Etched Blade ‘Arbeit Adelt’ (Work Enobles), Silver Plated Fittings & Silver Plated Scabbard With Hangers By Assman. Sn 14766 - 14766
The Reichsarbeitsdienst (RAD, "Reich Labour Service") was a major organisation established by Nazi Germany as an agency to help militarize the civilian workforce and indoctrinate it with Nazi ideology. It was the official state labour service, divided into separate sections for men and women. From June 1935 onwards, men aged between 18 and 25 had to serve six months before their military service. During World War II compulsory service also included young women and the RAD developed to an auxiliary formation which provided support for the Wehrmacht armed forces. Hundreds of RAD units also received training as anti-aircraft units and were deployed as RAD Flak Batteries. Several RAD units also performed combat on the eastern front as infantry. As the German defences were devastated, more and more RAD Units were committed to combat. During the final months of the war RAD men formed 6 major frontline units, which were involved with serious fighting. On the western front RAD troops were used as reinforcements to the 9th SS Engineer Abt (SS-Captain Moeller) in the fighting to retake the northern end of the Arnhem bridge from British Paratroopers under Col. Frost. Like most Nazi organisations the RAD was authorised a separate dagger for its enlisted men as well as Officer / Leader ranks. The enlisted man’s dagger adopted in 1934 was initially also worn by Sgts and Officers. These daggers had heavy stag horn grips and polished steel fittings. In 1937 an Officer’s or Leaders dagger was adopted to be worn solely by Officer’s / Leader’s. Similar in form to the enlisted man’s dagger the Officer’s / leader’s version has an white / ivory hue celluloid handle and silver fittings. These dagger’s were designed for dress wear rather than field use. This is an excellent, genuine example of the RAD Officer’s / Leader’s dagger. It has a 10 ¼” long blade with fullers and measures 15 ¼”overall. The blade is marked by the un-common manufacturer 'E.D. Wusthoff, Solingen' & trident trademark. The blade also has the correct RAD motto etching ‘Arbeit Adelt’ (Work Enobles). Its fixed langet on the cross guard has the RAD ‘Shovel With Swastika’ emblem. It has an Eagle’s head pommel and grooved ferrule together with correct white / ivory hue scales. The metal fittings of the dagger are silver plated. The dagger is complete with original silver plated steel scabbard which features stipple finish and geometric / stylised foliate decoration. One edge of the scabbard has 2 fixed hanging bars. The bars are fitted with original correct leather hangers which have their correct sprung clips and buckles. The buckles are marked by the manufacturer ‘A’ (Assman). The price for this rare, Nazi RAD Officer's / Leader’s Dagger, Scabbard & Hangers combination includes UK delivery. Sn 14766.
