The SS-VT, SS-Verfugungsrtruppe, Standarte III, (SS-Special Purpose Troops 3RD Regiment), was originally formed shortly after the annexation of Austria in April 1938. At the NSDAP’s, Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, (National Socialist German Worker’s Party), Nurnberg rally in September 1938 the unit was allotted the honorary title, “Der Fuhrer” and its personnel were authorized wear of a cufftitle with Gothic styled script. In October 1939 the Standarte became a component of the newly formed SS-VT-Division (mot.), which would eventually evolve into the 2ND Panzer-Division “Das Reich”. On transfer to the 2ND Panzer-Division “Das Reich” personnel of the 3RD Standarte retained the right to wear the cufftitle. Originally the cufftitle was manufactured with Gothic style script until December 1939 when the script was altered to Latin style script. The Standarte underwent three name designation, alterations during its time of service with the division receiving its final designation as 4TH SS-Panzer-Grenadier-Regiment “Der Fuhrer” on October 22ND 1943.
