Very rare and awesome photographs. Thank you both for sharing. The WW1 U-Boat veteran image is super cool. I wonder how he earned the '39 clasp for his EK2? He must have been in the regular military as well? The NCO level photograph is really nice as well. You guys have some phenominal pics! Are there more?

Hi Paul,

You start some really nice threads and I often find myself looking through my collection for something to contribute.

How about something similar like Werkschutz (factory/plant protection police). I have a nice portrait that I can contribute.

Cheers,

Larry

Thanks for sharing those great images. I wonder who the visiting General is in the first photo? I really am into the SHD portrait.

Yes, the Armband ranks are nearly impossible to find, in my opinion. What book did this come out of? I like the graphics.

Thanks Paul. :)

How about this old gentleman proudly posing for the camera.

Gotta love his goatee and moustache.

He wears a Luftschutz cap and insignia, sanitats armband, Sicherheits-u. Hilfsdienst armband, he wears a Weimar-era Red Cross belt and buckle.

His boots are the type seen in 1920s-30s photos. I know nothing about his tunic.

Cheers,

Larry

That is interesting... armed LS Polizei? How can you tell that they are not regular police?
