Footnote: On June 17, 1936, Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler was appointed to the newly created position of Chef der Deutschen Polizei im Reichsministerium des Innern, (Chief of the German Police in the National Ministry of the Interior), effectively giving him full control of all police agencies within Germany. As a result of this appointment and the restructuring of all the separate German state police into a single national police force, new regulations were instituted to bring about uniformity in dress for all police throughout the country. One of the new uniform regulations, was the introduction of two new styles of belt buckles on June 25,1936, with a round buckle for Officer’s ranks of Polizei Obermeister up to and including, Generaloberst der Polizei and a box buckle for NCO ranks of Polizei Unterwachtmeister up to and including Polizei Meister. Both the Company and Field grade officers and NCO’s buckles were produced with a silver finish while Generals ranks of Generalmajor up to and including, Generaloberst der Polizei utilized gilt finished belt buckles. The Police were divided into eight assorted branches of service, including the Wasserschutzpolizei (Water Protection Police), and in an exception to the rule, all ranks of the Wasserschutzpolizei utilized gilt buckles. The Wasserschutzpolizei were tasked with policing the coasts, inland waterways and harbour security, along with maintaining order and other general policing duties within greater Germany.
