The Afrikakorps cufftitle was officially introduced on July 18TH 1941, for wear by members of the, DAK, Deutsches Afrikakorps, (German Africa Corps), the German expeditionary force sent to assist the Italians in their disastrous North African campaign. On November 4TH 1941 regulations dictated that issue of the Afrikakorps cufftitle was to be extended to include the "Afrika" armoured group. Wear of the cufftitle was permitted when personnel were on furlough in Europe but when they transferred out of the North African theater the cufftitle was to be removed.
