The badge comprises of a broad sword that measures 56 mm in length with a cross guard measuring 24 mm. Onto this is superimposed an eagle with semi closed wings, its head facing to the viewers right. The body of the eagle takes the form of the blade of the broad sword. At the top of the eagles stylised chest is a raised swastika. Directly below again raised is a spanner, that over laps the sword on either side. At the base, just below the wings is a stylised motor radiator with mudguards on either side. Beneath this is a sprig of oak leaves, three on either side. The over all colour is guilt.
The reverse is flat with a hinge pin and large C catch.
