If this photo was not colourised I don't think I would have noticed the Range-Finder Operator sleeve insignia.

Hi Martin,

My photo is the same sepia colour as yours. I desaturated the colour when I scanned it. It is printed on an Agfa postcard and is discoloured around the edges. As you know copies were made and sent to comrades, family etc. Probably what happened here.

 

Another portrait in my collection: An Obergefreiter wearing a Coastal Artillery badge. I am not an expert on trade and qualification insignia so is it unusual to see a Unterpersonal der Stabe (Staff NCO) and a Bootsmann (Boatswain) patch worn with a CA badge? Also the extra chevron sewn

under his Obergefreiter stripes is to show he is awaiting a promotion?

Cheers,

Larry

I agree Larry.

My photo is also on Agfa Postcard stock and appears to have been removed from an album.

 

Cheers,Martin.

Another coincidence. I have a small photo lot of the Artillerie-Mechaniker in your wedding portrait.

He can be seen in the Prinz Eugen photo I posted earlier.

See photo and another wedding portrait of the same couple.

Cheers,

Larry
