    Photo of WH troops captured by the Soviets in 1943. Only the RKT appears to still wear the national insignia:

Size:  76.4 KBThe photo in post # 202 must not be 1943, but in 1945, and somewhere in Germany of that time. Look closely at the buildings in the rear. These are typical of Wehrmacht
    barracks as built in the 1930s. I know, I used to work in one.
    Thanks for the images.

    The picture description in Almany are not always accurate.

    Dear F.-B.,
    your fist picture is from the film triology 08/15, turned in 1954. In the picture you can see from right to left the actors Peter Karsten (Obergefreiter Kowalsky), Reinhard Glemnitz (Unteroffizier Lindenberg), Hans Christian Blech (Wachtmeister Platzek, he played in many of films like these), Rainer Penkert (Lt. Wedelmann).

    The exact scene where the still was taken can be seen on youtube here (at 13:18): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOM5...=RDUF2EJgaNYQY

    Nice, I suppose original, uniforms in the film, there were plenty of these, worth practically nothing at that time.

    Thank you, colleague, you are right as ever. The film is a favorite of mine. And I think all the uniforms in it are authentic, of the period, or made by tailors
    for the film who did so prior to May 1945. And such things were worthless. They were also more or less worthless in 1974 when I used to buy such things
    from theater sales in West Germany. I wish I still had all those things, by the way.
    damit, basta.

    Agreed. The buildings of the former Schochkaserne in my hometown look practically identical.

    Also, the actors in German war films of that era were authentic as well (for example, both Fuchsberger and Blech had served on the Eastern Front) and it is safe to say that their performances benefitted from having lived through and participated in the war.

    Very true, indeed, which is why their acting is so sublime versus the children one sees today, who ring totally hollow.

    Interesting, the lieutenant on the left seems to wear a British P37 holster & pistol ammo pouch, and possibly a P37 belt?
