NSDAP Einsatz u. Dienst Visor for Reichsleitung

Article about: Ley was probably the one who was most-photographed in an EuD uniform. You can see in his face that the events of the previous 5 years have caught up to him:

    I think Bill Shea has one of these caps for sale. They are interesting, thanks for the information.

    Cheers, Pat

    Bill's cap is a different material than the one Stonemint posted.

Size:  15.7 KBThe other piece unmentioned here is the role of the NSDAP in the Volksturm created later in 1944, as well as the NSDAP's role in the post attack environment in bombed out cities, which was "Einsatz," as well. The allied air offensive reached its high point in 1944. The winner in this process was Martin Bormann, and the eventual loser was Himmler, whose empire shrank as the realm of Nazi conquest shrank, in turn. Bormann seized even more power for himself and the NSDAP as the power relationships in the Reich shifted (decline of the SS and humiliation of the army....), and he saw a fighting role for the NSDAP as a way to stave off defeat.

    If anyone could help with the name, it would be greatly appreciated (appears to be Waiblin?):

    Great stuff. In the foto's ,the swastika armband , is it airbrushed out, or is that 'subdued' as was mentioned?

    I've taken the liberty of adding some -previously posted- photos of my Osteinsatz visor for comparison.

    It is airbrushed out.

    The Swastika armband worn on the "EuD" uniform was only subdued insofar as it was a plain standard-type Swastika armband without any of the duty position insignia normally displayed on the Political Leaders' armbands (piping, braid, oakleaves, pips etc.).

    Notice that the Ober-Bereichsleiter-ranked Kreisleiter in the above post is wearing different brassards with his "EuD" uniform and his regular service dress: With the former order of dress, it is a plain Swastika armand, with the latter, it has the pipings and central oakleaves stripe for his duty position.

    Bravo. Photos with a contemporary German source often have the Hakenkreuz removed. This fact mystifies Americans and others, but the legal situation in continental Europe is far more restrictive as concerns these issues than elsewhere. Nor is my intervention an invitation for others to lament this fact, either. Thanks to my colleague in Bavaria who always improves a thread with his work. He sets a fine example for us all.
    damit, basta.

    Here are color pics of the only known EuD uniform that I am aware of, which is in the collection of our own Bob C. Note the hidden buttons and the standard party-armband:
