NSKK Pas - Photo insignia Match Unit?

Recommended Posts

I've just received this item, I was'nt aware until I got it that the photo original photo had been removed& the current "replacement" stuck down in ts place at some time.

The photo is oversized & does'nt bear the portion of ink stamp that it should.

The man's collar tab bears "58/R39", does this bear any relation to the actual NSKK unit of Motor Gruppe / Brigade Berlin?

(I will add scans of the unit stamp when I get a chance).

The unit is given on the first page as 13/M30, Berlin, the collar patch in the photo bears 58/R39.

What's the significance of the M & the R please, do they indicate the type of Gruppe?

M=Motorstandarte, M30=Motorstandarte 30.

"R"=Reserve-Standarte (a normal foot-Standarte with men of 36-45 years) and has nothing to do with NSKK. So the person on the photo wears collar patches from Sturm 58/Reserve-Standarte 39. Resreve-Standarte were disbanded after December 1936.
