    Very beautiful uniform...the early BW stuff is very close to the TR era quality if I'm not mistaken...are there any photos of Dr. Otto Dippelhofer in a Nazi-era SS/Police uniform?

    Don't know about him in a TR uniform.
    The set went for about 900 bucks if I recall right.

    The BGS was created in 1951. It was quite distinct from the Bundeswehr, created in 1955, although cadres of BGS went on to serve in the Bw.
    The man was a Sturmbannfuehrer in SS.
    damit, basta.

Size:  98.5 KBThe BGS had its own cold war mission on the inner German border, and I well recall its operations in the streets of early 1970s Bonn am Rhein, when I was a student there in the counter terror posture of that long ago epoch.
    damit, basta.
