The Insignia of the SA

SA-Stabswache Göring

In January 1931 Ernest Röhm returned to the position of Chief-of-Staff of the Storm Detachments (Sturmabteilungen-SA).  In this role he quickly formed a special guard unit (Stabswache) to protect key leaders including himself.  Special Stabswache were established not only for Röhm but also for Hermann Göring and Adolf Hitler.  Members of these guard units wore standard SA uniforms including brown painted Austrian and German pattern World War I helmets. 

As Prussian Minister-President, Hermann Göring oversaw his own Stabswache.  This unit served as an elite security unit but was also responsible for special police related duties in the state of Prussia.  Following the murder of Ernst Röhm and the subsequent restructuring of the SA, the SA-Stabswache Göring was disbanded by orders of Adolf Hitler.  The only unit that remained was Adolf Hitler's own "life guard" (Leibstandarte) group which later was integrated directly into the SS.  The SA-Stabswache Göring ceased to exist after 1934 and its members were integrated into other elite police units as well as the SA-Standarte Feldherrnhalle.
