M44 Peadot Tunic Question

Ive noticed in quite a lot of pics taken in Normandy through to Arnhem that SS troops wearing the M44 Peadot camo tunic fail to wear shoulder boards. The officers wear the sleave rank insignia but no shoulder boards....even in the Osprey books the reference paintings seem to show post 1943 the practice of wearing shoulder boards with the peadot camo tunic stopped.

Has anyone got any ideas why?
This is a story you'll tell your grandchildren, and mightily bored they'll be!
