Gustav Curtse was a very important key member / leader of the TeNo & is a well referenced and recognized TR figure.

Congrats on obtaining his special & quite nice ribbon bar as this will certainly be both an historic as well as an important part of your collection.

Best, Dave / dblmed

Hi

 

,I got by a friend who is not collecting 60 WH brochures as these pictures are of photographed. Probably to get good pictures as the format is 1 meter by 60cm. Must take new pictures with my digital Nikon.

 

Cheer, Morten.

Nice photo nesredep as well as quite special period photographic documentation of the Teno / TN activities.                        

The photos & printed documentation / press photos allow us to better understand the interworking of the Teno.

Photos & Photodocumentation makes it quite clear that the Teno functioned & served in:

  • a) The Heimat / Greater Germany - usually wearing the classic Dunkelblau / Navy Blue uniform
  • b) The HEER - wearing Heer tunics, with Teno rank tabs & shoulder patches, and with Teno interior stamping. Often with Teno sleeve band as well, especially early war.
  • c) The Luftwaffe - wearing Luftwaffe tunics, but with Teno rank tabs & shoulder patches, and often with Teno interior stamping. 
  • d) The Navy / Kriegsmarine - ( not seen in a Navy uniform configuration photo ... Yet ). served as an "attached" unit building / refurbishing ports, locks, canals, barges and related. ( The photo above shows a Naval officer awarding the Iron Cross / EK to 3 Teno men ( dressed in Heer uniforms ) at some Naval related location.
  • e) The SS - the Teno, those predominantly outside of Greater Germany, from mid 1943 on switched over to wearing the Teno-Police uniforms, wearing nearly identical SS matched collar tabs. The Teno was attached to the SS & took orders from the chain of command, but continued to function in their prior "Technical Help" capacities.

The Teno served in essentially all of the theaters of WWII - & with all of the 4 branches of the combat arms. Rather fascinating ...              Best, Dave L / dblmed

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
