Obviously a wartime photo, as You can see a Panzerkampfabzeichen on the chest of the NSKK man behind Kraus ( probably a Transportgruppe Speer man )

.........

What is more obvious that this is a wartime photo is that Erwin Kraus is wearing rank insignia of NSKK-Korpsf?hrer, a position to which he was appointed on 21 June 1942, three days after the death of his predecessor, Adolf H?hnlein.

Max.

Very cool photo.  Some NSKK men fought as Heer Soldiers during the Polish and French Campign as Reservists, then went back to their full time position in the NSKK.  Also notice he has an EK II ribbon.

 

one other famous NSKK member who had the Tank Assault Badge and EK I Spange was NSKK- Obergruppenfuhrer August Kobele, the finance guy for the NSKK.

 

honestly, I love this organization.  So many neat people and a cool mission.

 

thanks for sharing
