Another mis-described photo from E-Bay. Sold as Feldgendarmerie, but actually a much harder to find photo of a Bahnhofswache NCO.

Alhough the Gorget is similar to the Feldgendarmerie type, there is a subtly different shape to the scroll., and of course no eagle in the centre (just the Abteilung number). Although the back of the photo is anotated "Zug Streife" suggesting Zugwache the word on the scroll although not too clear, definitely isnt long enough for "Zugwachabteilung".

Nice photo. When it comes to the Bahnhofswache and Zugwache Abt's would there be any overlap of responsibilities when in stations (or in the vicinity of stations) or was there a clear line in the sand as to where one had authority and the other didn't?

Wilhelm Saris informed me that his new book "Ringkragen und Brustschilder im Dritten Reich", containing about 1,500 pictures, is about to be published. It was due to appear in November last through James Bender but now delayed.
