Tropical medical specialist badges

Hi, here are some photos of tropical medical specialist badges in my collection. 

The badge on the left is designed for the tropical Mantel (overcoat) and has the silver cord denoting NCO status of the wearer.

Following photo is from p. 79 of "Rommel's Army in Africa" by Dal McGuirk and appears to show the tropical medical specialist badge attached to the sleeve of a soldier's tunic.

Re: Tropical medical specialist badges

I found this further photo on the internet last night.  Caption read that this was a medical orderly assisting with the movement of wounded troops following the Axis surrender in Tunisia in 1943.

The medical specialist badge appears on the lower right sleeve.  Regards Mark.

Another medical specialist badge - part of group photo from Sonderverband 288.
