    Spent the last few days sorting out boxes with my roommate in the back of a closet we share. This stuff was jammed into one of them; we have no idea how it got there.

    Got a vague idea what most of it is, but I've been unable to ID that patch. Can anyone help?

    I know that's not what it means but I keep wanting to read the first item as "Border Troops of Dance Dance Revolution"

    DDR is short for Deutsche Democratische Republic, the official name of East Germany before the Berlin Wall went bye-bye.

    The German Afrikakorps item is a cuff title. It was worn on the left sleeve 15cm from the edge of the cuff. It was only issued while in the North African campaign. Once the soldier was out of Africa they wore a different title that just said "AFRIKA" on it. The "AFRIKA" one was awarded to veterans of North Africa, replacing the one you have. That is probably why it is not on a tunic. It could be worth quite a bit on ebay.
