Hello imperialists 😄

I got a photocard of a Weimar guy on it. It has no date and wasn`t written.

I believe it is an Obersteuermann (in english: helmsman?) with his two anchors on the shoulderboards.

Now my question - why does he have collar mirrors ?

Is it a mixed uniform - early, or was it normal?

Thanks !

Hello!

To me it´s a photo from the early Reichswehrmarine since november 1919. Then the cocade was introduced.

The collar mirrors and the shoulder straps are those from the imperial Marinekorps by removing the imperial crown.

Thanks for showing.

At my pic: The 2 anchors - does they mean Obersteuermann, or is it a normal EM`s rank.

Hello!

I cheked your photo again. I was wrong with Marinekorps.

It´s a simple fieldgrey naval uniform since April 15, 1921. (Marine-Verordnungsblatt Nr.10)

"Collar with Double-braidings like the early See-Bataillon, without collar-tabs."

All NCO and EM had those crossed anchors on ther shoulder-straps.

The crossed anchors for helmsmen were worn as an oval patch upon the upper arm
