During the Olympics in 1936, members from the RAD, assisted as hospital orderlies
This white dress was only worn during the games. Later one was shown at the
RAD-Mustersammlung, a permanent exhibition at the RAD headquarters
The photographs were shown in volume 5 from "Headgear of Hitler's Germany", in
a special section.

Thank you Wim for posting the additional photographs. It is interesting to note that the cut of the SS and RAD white jackets is very similar with the SS ones lacking the standard rear ramp buttons. Who knows, perhaps there was one large Olympic contract?
I agree, this has become an excellent thread, so I have tidied it up a bit.
Here is another shot of the RAD men:
Wim--do you know which individuals were allowed to wear this style visor other than bandsmen?:
This is supposed to be one of the above visors. I am not entirely convinced:
These individuals in the white-top visors apparently worked as security at the Olympics.
It appears that the shoulder-patch says "Kontrol":
Thanks for all the fine and revealing material of great merit.
Wim, your knowledge and insight never ceases to amaze me--I had been trying to figure out what organization they belonged to for years.
