  1. Another (very large size) colourized portrait with the tally Panzerschiff Admiral Scheer Nice one Morten!
  2. Another set of shoulderboards: VI. Marine-Artillerie-Abteilung [6th Naval (Coastal) Artillery Battalion], stationed in Emden. This type of shoulder boards were used until 26-08-1939.
  3. There are few candidates... Souchon, Ehrhard Schmidt, Reinhard Koch, Guido von Usedom, Günther von Krosigk, Gustav Bachmann - but of these only Von Usedom, Von Krosigh, and Bachmann show a slight facial resemblance.
  4. Considering the bundle of neck decorations, I would think of Franz von Hipper, but he died in 1932... I cannot find any other full Admiral with so many neck decorations
  5. Apart from the State of Israel, which did not exist at te time, the only country with a 6-pointed phaleristic device I can think of is Morocco.
  6. Not KM but nearly. One of the crew of M.S. Wilhelm Gustloff (April 1938), wearing a black silk tally with yellow lettering "M.S. Wilhelm Gustloff". She was one of a fleet of holiday ships, owned and charterd by the German Labour Front (D.A.F.) section "Kraft durch Freude" (Strength through Joy). The ships were taken into military service in September 1939 as hospital ships, and accomodation ships for U-boat training units in the German Baltic harbours.
  7. U-Bootsabwehrschule (Submarine-Defence School), Postal stamp April 1936)
  8. Marinenachrichtenschule (Naval Communications School) The school was in Kiel-Mürwik and counted 4 school companies, the 1st, 3rd and 4th were Funk (Wireless) and the 2nd was Signal (Visual signalling)
  9. Here is another, similar, pullover as worn by a ship's cook on a Vorpostenboot
  10. Very nice, Morten. He is wearing a civilian type of fishermen's pullover, the official issue winter blue pullover did not close with buttons. But on board of a small vessel no one cared much about such things.
  11. Three TeNo guys from Riga in Letland A TeNo Wachtmeister with Police type shoulder boards
  12. Erntedankfest 1934, Bitterfeld [Thanks Giving Day 1934 in Bitterfeld], with Police checking the documents
