Indeed, this is a wonderful forum with many fine members and moderators.
A bit of a typo there FB, but perhaps it still conveys somewhat of my intended meaning. As always your willingness to help in the matter of such as this does not go unnoticed. Hats off to you sir.

Thanks, dear colleague. I think the phrase "willing mess" is a stroke of genius and well characterizes the fundamental truth of this all.
Forgive me for admittedly detracting from the actual subject of the thread; but may I ask about the nature of the photo album seen above and whether more images from it may be found somewhere?
Am I right in assuming these are pages from an album that once belonged to Julius Schaub? (He's in three of the photographs and the Sepp Dietrich portrait is dedicated to him.)
Dear Colleague, I found that somewhere, and I cannot recall. It has nice cap pictures with nice cap badges.....maybe you can suck up the pictures and use tin eye to discern where it arose....
my best to you, FB
Right; lazy me... Indeed I found it via a reverse image search: It's on the Hermann Historica site, in the catalogue for the 22/23 Oct. 2012 auction, where it was listed with a 7,000 € limit.
