    What do their dress regulations say on how far down the arm in centimetres the eagle was worn ?

    Add to that how many cm below the eagle was the rank chevron sewn on ?

    The following are the wartime regulations for sewing on SS sleeve insignia:

    Sleeve eagle: 16cm down from the shoulder seam centered on the left arm.

    Rank chevrons or national shields (when worn in the early, upper-sleeve position) are to be placed 1.5cm
    below the sleeve eagle, centered.

    Thanks Kyle. I did it by eye in the end after looking at loads of photos.
    Looks ok to me & matches up to those dimensions divided by 6. :)
