  1. Photo taken at a District Leadership School in Jan 1935. The person whom I think looks like Ribbentrop is in the second row, first on the left.
  2. Speculating here, but could this fellow, Schikowsky, be one of the Eben Emael pilots?
  3. That's interesting. Do you know where I could find another photo, or reference to the Landespolizei insignia? Regards, Kevin
  4. I have not been able to find an exact match for these collar tabs. What are they? Thanks in advance. --Kevin
  5. Thanks for commenting, guys. POWs or allies, I'm not sure. Probably never know for certain. Either way it's an interesting photo.
  6. A friend sent this info to me, which lends credence to the possibility that these Czechs were allied with the Germans: There was a small Czech Army setup after the Nazis took over and they were used against partisans and in 1944 they were sent to Italy ...and the uniforms in that pic would be correct so , if they were part of that group , they were allied with the Germans at the time ...but since there's no date , we don't know https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Government_Army_(Bohemia_and_Moravia)
  7. ArHo, that's what I thought at first, but it's odd that they still have some gear on, none of the German soldiers appear to be armed, and it all seems very amicable. But perhaps they were defectors?
  8. I have this photograph that appears to be German army soldiers (standing) with several Czech soldiers sitting on the ground. First of all, I'm not sure if they are Czech. But if so, why would they be together?
  9. The writing on the reverse seems to be from a relative perhaps informing someone of his death. Can somebody give me a translation of the writing? I don't have a good eye for the old Schrift...
  10. Wondering if these are period images or just reenactment. What do you think? --Kevin
  11. Well, the guy in the back is certainly convinced they're going to the pub! 😄
  12. I wish I could determine a date for this photo. It's pasted in an album, so I cannot see the reverse. You can see that Lutze has his arm in a sling. Any ideas?
  13. I like this photo because of the mix of SS, SA, and Political personnel. You can pretty clearly see daggers, cuff titles, and the different caps/kepis in wear. Where do you suppose this interesting mix of men might be headed? --Kevin
