Wow! what an assortment!!!

If you can make a clear enlargement of the Stabsarzt's ribbon bar in #1, knowing which Imperial state he came from MIGHT come up from a name with that large a combination. Interesting to see the officer cadet version insignia on his younger colleague. For some reason those officer-width/stiff "NCO" boards never seem to turn up.

#2 is wearing an ARMY enlisted ranks tunic. :speechless1::speechless1::speechless1: I don't see any anchors on his buttons!

#3 with the beard... I don't see any anchors on his buttons either. His straps mystify me. He doesn't appear to have NCO/PO braid on his collar, so that can't be a subdued Feldwebel strap. One metallic bar is for NCO candidates... so what's he doing with that AND a pip?

#4 is wearing very nice war's duration Beamten collar tabs-- conhtrast with #12.

#8 I don't recognize the General's face, but perhaps those who do NOT rely on ribbon bars :catjava: can!

#12 This war's duration Paymaster is wearing Regular officials tabs-- yet he's obviously a war's duration type too. His ribbon bar ends with the 25 Years Civil Service Cross, not Wehrmacht long services.

#14 Mein Gott!!!!!! :Cat-Scratch::speechless1: It is the ULTRA RARE, TOP SECRET

Another from the Kriegsmarine wearing a beautiful IC1. Love the beard

The Kriegsmarine one looks more like a member of an "Ostvolk" unit. I have never seen that type of shoulder strap insignia. Definitely not KM, IMHO.

Second photo is much better as it clearly shows the boards and the ribbons for the IC2 and the Honor Cross with swords,



the Aufsch?be on the shoulder straps indicate that the wearer is attached to the 21. Wehrkreis Verwaltung (Warthelgau, Posen)

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
