According to the reference book of Dr. Klietmann, Hitler ordained a special uniform for all recipients of the Blutorden in 1937.
Has any of the gentlemen pictures of this uniform in wear and is he willing to share on the forum?
Thanx!

Here you go.

The special uniform for Blood Order holders being worn at a 1940s wartime funeral.

The uniform is a specially authorised copy of the typical early 1920s garb.

Thanks for showing Robin :cheers: , it looks a bit like the early Gebirgsjäger jacket.
Now I know what to look for, I'll go through my NSDAP photos to see if I have perhaps one also.
