Obviously during the war, friends and family served in one of the many military branches or in some other uniformed organisation. When they met, it was fun to put as many different uniforms in one studio portrait as possible. Here are some from my collection, do you have more to show?

Nice first image showing the U-Boat Combat Clasp. In fact the only awards seem to worn by the two Naval men in what is a late war photo.

Great idea for a thread. I have a few to add, some may have already been posted in different threads but are relevant here.

I will try to ID the different branches or organisations in this photo.

L - R: Army, Hitler Youth, Political Leader, SS or looking at sleeve band could be SD, Political Leader, Army, Diplomatic Corps, Kreis

Leader, SA or NSKK.

Cheers,

Larry

Nice photo.

Looking at his tie and pants I would suggest the guy at right is wearing a tropical uniform worn by those serving in Afrika Korps and Italy etc.

Cheers,

Larry

Nice to see the Veteran's dress Larry, and I like the early style Army uniform.

Some more Army guys with their relatives and/or friends:

- Army (Radfahrabteilung 1) Cyclist and Police, in 1938;

- Army (75th Inf.Rgt.) and Navy, pre 1939;

- Army and Police, around 1935;

- Army and Reichsarbeitsdienst, around 1938;

- Army and Navy,two brothers Walter and Rudi who were both killed (the photo was likely manipulated to put them together);

- Army (2 different uniforms) and Air Force, in 1941.

Very nice portraits Odulf.

It is interesting to see the different services that family members enlisted in.

Here is another family portrait. The father is a high-ranking Forestry official. His very young-looking son is a Panzer man.

Cheers,

Larry
