    Does anyone have a list of what color beret is assigned to which branch in the German Army? Somehow I've aquired a pile of them and would like to make sure I have the correct badges mounted...

    every male person born in germany is enlisted as an conscript, even if his roots here only reach the 2nd generation. if i remember right another german member here said once he knows that guy, and that he is a turkish german.

    Nearly righ.
    But you forgot
    Pink:Armor Driver
    Yellow:EloKa(Fernmelder) do not know how they are called in english
    KSK do not wear any Badges and Fernspäher wear Green Badges because they belong to the DSO and partly to the Fallschirmjägerspezialzüge

    Regards Dom

    The question concerned the color of the beret(s) not the color of the "Litzen".

    what´s about the fernspählehrkompanie 200? i guess you mixed the poor fernspäher up with the luftlandeaufklärer, didn´t you? or did more "real" fernspäher remain in other units?

    or maybe did i miss the final days of the fernspäher??

    imho the translation would be either fernmelder (signal corps, just the communication work) or fernmeldetruppe eloka (electronic warfare what includes signal intelligence, communication intelligence and electronic intelligence), two different things

    But if you call it "KSK Kommandofeldbluse" you will get more for it on eBay.

    Re: Beret colors - Thanks for all the quick replies!

    My collection (so far):

    Maroon with Fallschirmjäger badge
    Green with Jäger badge
    Black with Panzeraufkläsrungstruppe badge
    Medium Blue with a Medical badge
    Bright Red with an Ordnance badge

    I also have loose Naval Infantry and Engineer's badges - so now I know what colors to pick-up to complete my collection - again thanks!

    My Fernspäher badge came mounted on a Burnt Orange beret (close in color to a UN Observer's beret) - would that be correct or do I have someting to fix?

    BTW - I can usually pick-up German berets for about $5.00US at a local surplus place if anybody's interested.

    No, Burnt Orange is incorrect. The Fernspäher wear a Maroon Beret with their badge.
