    The arrest of the Flensburg govt--what is interesting is that Jodl was not awarded the RK until May 6, 1945, and the Oakleaves on May 10, 1945--both bestowed by Doenitz.

    Just to affirm the previous... Great thread! Love it, and thank you. Particularly the image of the pint-sized British Tom escorting the Aryan 'supermen' with fixed pig-sticker. Captures something essential about the British Army that I can't quite put into words.
    And the shot of prisoners seated in the pen -some bandaged- one individual is missing the eagle and totenkopf on his visor - disguising his branch of service to avoid rough treatment / retribution? Allied soldier trophy snatch? What do you guys think?

    A few pictures (sorry fot the bad quality) taken from the book "1945 - Entscheidung für Österreich" (Decision for Austria) by Manfred Rauchensteiner, ed. by: Heeresgeschichtl. Musem u. Militärwissenschaftl. Institut Wien. Styria: Graz, 1975.
    Interesting, that the Feldgendarm was allowed to wear his uniform after the unconditional surrender.

    Fantastic photos here! One question I have when I see these and other photos of German POWs is - where are the combat helmets? They all seem to be wearing caps/visors. Were the helmets shed upon capture and they were allowed to keep the soft headwear?

    Helmets and belts are considered weapons and are almost always removed from prisoners .

    I kinda thought that might be why.

    The surrender of Rudel & his men (and one woman!) at Kitzingen airfield, May 8,1945.
    Rudel was wearing his visor and leather overcoat at the time of his surrender, and is in the pic with the red arrow.
    (The color pic is from a different day, when he and other high-ranking LW personnel were being boarded for transport).
