    They aren't wearing collar piping, but I suppose you mean collar patch piping.



    There is nothing unusual about it; this is the black-and-aluminum piping worn by privates and NCOs, which was officially abolished in August 1940.

    From the types of field caps, field blouses and shoulder boards, it is clear that this is an early-war photograph. (The EK2 ribbons tell us it can't be pre-war.)
    Thanks, the image was just so blurry that I couldn't see and it looked like officer's white aluminum piping.

    The patches are like this, however worn on the field grey blouse. The image seems to be from 1940 or so, as Wim and Andreas wisely mention.

    Notice the shoulder straps as well as the side caps and so forth.
    damit, basta.

    Andreas and Wim are always right.
    I make mistakes so now and then, as we probably all do!

    Well, of course, but your mistakes are usually more informative than the right answers of others, all of which are based on your books.....

    When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
    An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
    An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling

    Thanks Wilhelm..... Don't suppose you have a scan of it do you?

    Oh well, but I owned it and sold it, someone else gets the credit, as usual Came straight from the family in Germany, never before in a collection
