    Beautiful Display Horst. Love the spade as well. Not very often we get to view one of these, especially in that shape. It looks right at home down there in the bunker.

    horst, my nieghbor is going to show me this week how too get pics on the site.i think you will like what i have. have gained alot of knowledge on this site as too what too look for and what to stay away from.before i discovered the site, i did end up w/some things that i now know arent oringnal.but thats the cost of learning. but i have also done very well on some items that are orignal.anyway looking forward to posting and to get your opinion on what i have.boy it doesnot take long to get a pile of money tied up in this stuff.was vey fortunate to meet an elderly gentleman locally that also collected for a long time and his health is not in the best shape. he has been more than fair on his pricing. i think he just wants to find a good home for his ww2 german.I think he would rather sell to someone that wants to keep it, than to sell it and have someone make a profit.(garden state )are you in usa sounds like new jersy. thanks again

    Why is it the RAD men are always seen with a square-ended shovel but their badges always show pointed shovels on them? Enquiring minds want to know.

    zwerge - thats easy - before the RAD there was the FAD(Freiwillige Arbeitsdiebst) which had its main symbol the square Spade as is shown on the unit FAD standard below.In June of 1935 Konstantin Hierl the newly appointed Reichsarbeitfuhrer of the NSDAP RAD didnt want to use the old FAD symbols and initiated the new Spade symbols, uniforms ,rank etc.Hope this helps clear the spade issue up for you.

    This sounds very nice if you are poor but I imagine the rich might feel a bit threatened

    Horst, a very cool piece of history and the first that I have seen. If I had one laying around my wife would probably use it to clean up dog poop!
