Rank System in Waffen-SS
Ranks from SS-Schütze to SS-Obersturmbannführer had the SS-runes on the right collar-patch and the rank insignia on the left. SS-Standartenführer to SS-Oberstgruppenführer had rank insignia on both sides. Some Waffen-SS units had the unit emblem on the right collar patch instead the SS-runes.
