  1. Mützenband Marinelazarett Swinemunde. Cheers, Larry
  2. Hi Jock, Nice grouping. Can you tell us more about his service? Cheers, Larry
  3. Heer Chaplain presiding over a burial somewhere in Russia. From an Inf. Rgt.19 album. Cheers, Larry
  4. Yes, definitely looks like a 7 to me. Cheers, Larry
  5. I turned your photo around and I'm pretty sure that your FP number is 43987 FP 43987 28.2.1941 - 29.7.1941 Hafenschutz-Flottille Nordholland 8.9.1942 - 11.3.1943 Hafenschutz-Flottille IJmuiden See: http://www.axishistory.com/about-ahf/366-germany-kriegsmarine/kriegsmarine-sicherungsstreitkraefte/6603-hafenschutzflottille-nordholland Cheers, Larry Closer view. You can just make out the 7.
  6. Very nice photo showing a KM Chaplain. Do you know where the photo was taken. Seems some family were present, widow perhaps? Here is an in the field photo showing a Chaplain performing what I think is Holy Communion. Cheers, Larry
  7. Thank you Bayern for your informative reply. If the crown is a royal symbol I wonder who was being buried. A Heer officer pays his respects to fallen comrades. A Chaplain can be seen standing far right of photo. Cheers, Larry
  8. Possibly someone from the aristocracy being buried. Here is a Heer Chaplain presiding over a Luftwaffe funeral. I believe Goring forbade chaplains in Luftwaffe ranks.
  9. Very nice Morten, thanks for contributing to this thread. Heer Chaplain. Note the white coffin. Cheers, Larry
  10. Please post your Wehrmacht Chaplain photos. They can be from any branch of the Wehrmacht. I will start with this Wehrmachtkriegspfarrer ( military Chaplain) portrait. Cheers, Larry
  11. Very nice funeral photos showing KM Chaplain. Would it be better to start a new thread on Chaplain photos from all branches of the Wehrmacht? I have a few I could contribute. Cheers, Larry
  12. Hi Morten, I could make a KM Chaplain thread but I only have these two photos. Does somebody have any more to post? I do have a few Heer Chaplain photos in my collection. According to Angola & Schlicht's "Die Kriegsmarine - Uniforms & Traditions Vol. 2" the collar patches in my photos are of the M1942 pattern. Odulf is correct in stating the Chaplain is of the Protestant/Evangelical faith as there is no Stola worn and no "Christ" on his cross. See scans from the book. Cheers, Larry And
  13. Thanks Odulf and GreyC for your comments. The men are wearing "Kriegsmarine" cap tallies and most wear Minensucherabzeichen. At least two are wearing EK 2 ribbons. I was thinking the location could be somewhere in Norway? Some close-ups showing more details. Cheers, Larry
