Hello uk-ok, the armband was to be worn by non-uniformed personnel serving, in one way or another, with the German armed forces. The eagle on the left is/could be for the M-43 cap and the one on the right looks like a navy breast eagle (gold on dk. blue). (missing the head???).
Since I'm not an expert on this subject, perhaps someone with more knowledge can shed more light on this.
