The Afrika Korp cuff title was instituted on the 18th July 1941, prior to this date various variants we made were locally made and worn by troops for various branches.  The cuff-title was awarded to troops who served a minimum of two months.

The Afrika Korp cuff title was worn approximately 15cm from the bottom of the lower right sleeve and was seen as a decoration for troops that had served in the North Africa Campaign as was permitted to wear on the field grey uniforms serving in Europe.
