  3. Very nice photo. Those Stab abzeichen in wear photos are nice. I have a couple myself. Here is my rarest photo showing a late war Radar Operator patch. He served on U-716. Cheers, Larry
  4. An update on my KM trade and career patches collection. The collection is slowly growing bigger. Cheers, Larry Forgot to add this pre-1940 Unterwasserhorcher patch for summer uniform.
  5. Nice photo. Thanks for posting. Cheers, Larry

  12. 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
  13. Yes, definitely looks like a 7 to me. Cheers, Larry
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. Very nice Morten, thanks for contributing to this thread. Heer Chaplain. Note the white coffin. Cheers, Larry
  19. Hi, I recently managed to purchase two photos showing a Chaplain presiding over a KM funeral. There is no writing on the back of the photos. There are a lot of sombre faces in the photos. Here is the first one. Cheers, Larry Second photo. Closer view of Chaplain.
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
