Very nice Morten! Interesting to note that the band are wearing the Feldbluse with Schwalbenneste and fingergloves, but the troops coming after them are comfortably wearing the Mantel. I can imagine the bansdsmen are not pleased...

A NCO wearing the dress for shore based units, but with two remarkable features:

On the pleat of the left breast pocket, he is wearing the Baltenkreuz, a decoration not often seen on the navy uniform. The Baltenkreuz was instituted 1919 for volunteers who fought the Bolsheviks in the Baltic area (NW Russia). About 22.000 of these crosses were issued.

He is not wearing the regular boots for NCOs, but (Army Artillery) boots, with a strap over the foot, possibly these were privately obtained, but in combination with a Navy uniform not often seen.

Nice one Morten. Interesting to see that he wears a brand new belt, the threads of the stitching are not yet blackened with polish and the buckle is untouched, in greyish green. He has a new uniform, probably recently transfered from the fleet. Can you see what badge is on his shoulderstraps?

Hi Odulf,
Thanks for the comment. Not unusual to see such a new belt. Shoulderboards show the 5th Costal Artillery Battalion.

 

Cheers,Morten.

Thanks Morten, the Destroyer War Badge [Zerstörer-Kriegsabzeichen] was established 4 June 1940, but the shoulderstraps with crossed anchors and Roman numerals (as here for Marineartillerieabteilung 5) became obsolete in March 1939 (replaced by the general MAA crest of the flaming granade on the anchor). Another example that the 'old' stype shoulderstraps were continued in wear for a long period.

Hi ,
We are a 5-6 friends in here who are active on this Forum and they are
I am very fond of. But then we unfortunately have an open Forum as people do not have to sign up to see the posts. But unfortunately also many members in here who unfortunately only harvest but sow very rarely.

Scene photo of Kriegsmarine guys in a brawl or mugging - their smiling faces say enough. Interesting to see what is moslty hidden by the tunics; the cut of the trousers, suspenders, shirts and jersey.

Hi,

I'm afraid it happens in all threads and forums. You have thousands of members, thousands of looks at threads, a few who comment and a few who contribute. The few who contribute keep the threads alive otherwise they would die.

Cheers,

Larry

Interesting photo Larry, do you have more info about what we see (location, unit, year)?

Hi,

The photo is in an album which belonged to a crewman who served aboard M132  (1 Minensuchflottille). As there are many photos of the 1 Minensuchflottille 1 cap tally in wear I would say they were taken pre -1939. He served some time aboard the harbor vessel v.St. Hieckmann, Memel as well. The album contains postcards of Minensuchflottille Pillau, Pillau Harbor, Marineschule Flensburg, Torpedoschule Flensberg-Mürwik. Is it possible that the parade photo was taken at one of those locations?

Cheers,

Larry

    • 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
