M44 peadot tunics and insignia?

Hello Fellow hobbyists
i was curious to know about the M44 peadot tunic so i had a question regarding collar patches and cufftitiles.
during normandy did HJ grenadiers apply ss collar patches and cufftitles to their peadot tunics? i know it was not regulation but was wondering if any of you fellas had any photographic evidence showing otherwise? any info or pics would be appreciated.

Artists can color the sky red because they know it's blue. Those of us who aren't artists must color things the way they really are or people might think we're stupid.

It’s very rare that you see the addition of collar rank or honour titles added to any form of camouflage uniform, I have never seen this within the ranks of HJ but have seen it amongst the ranks of LAH Tiger Abteilung, even Kurt Meyer didn’t have any rank on his blared edge M44 uniform, what you will see is the subdued sleeve rankings or the normal wool tunic collar pulled over the top of the camouflage uniform

Hi yes I second that just the subdued sleeve eagle . I have seen one some were with the standard rank , this was in a military catalouge and not a war time picture but I dont think that's correct, I would stick with the subdued sleeve eagle .
