    A very crisp and detailed group shot that shows both the blue and field-grey uniforms of the Kriegsmarine.

    Both the Blockade Breaker and the Marine Artillery awards can be seen in wear.

    The general idea behind this topic was to show multi uniform portaits of people who wanted to be pictured in their various uniforms. We are ending with pictures of people who are gathered in uniform and pictured on occasion.

    My idea is, and correct me if I'm wrong, that in the 1930's, and even the early stages of the war, service men (and women) were expressing to do their (uniformed) duty an it was fun to be pictured together with uniformed friends and family, but later in the war, all able men and women were wearing a kind of uniform so the uniform was more of a rule than exeption. In other terms, in the beginning the wearing of the uniform was an honorary distinction, but as the war dragged on, it became an obligatory burden.

    Here a proud father in the late 1930's, wearing his Kyffhaüser Bund (veterans) uniform, with his sons in the German Red Cross, and for contrast, a bunch of uniformed defenders of the Reich (of all branches) in March/April 1945.

    Really nice photos showing a mixture of TR organisations and services.

    The last photo posted by Martin W is especially nice.
