Santitats UO (6months training)The company medical NCO (wore blue waffenfarbe) and orgainsied the KT (medics) caduceus arm badge
Sanitatsofficer (Junior Medical Doctor/Officer- Battalion MO) wore blue waffenfarbe -In charge of the Unterofficers and direct advanced care(short of big surgery) in the battalion aid station (Truppenverbandplatz of the battalion.)
Presumably there was a more senior Doctor (Regimental MO) that advised the regimental commander as to medical matters and was in charge of/helped the junior doctors?
Thank you for the information. I have tried to look at the picture (see above) but the pic is gone on that page. Can any-one shopw me a pic from the badge that the Sani's wore on their sleeve. Or even better the different kind of badges from the Sani's.
