    Post 2 are officials from the DDAC, wearing the authorized greyish dress,
    as announced in spring 1934.
    For those interesting, here the drawings for the dress, which was known
    as "Sportkleidung des DDAC" (DDAC sports dress). Descriptions
    are to be found in the 1934 "DDAC-Jahrbuch", pages 113-115.
    A sort of "inspection" controlled the cloths for the dresses and great-coat.

    Tunic front and reverse and the greatcoat, known as Sportmantel.
    Note the stand for the eagle's head in 1934.

    Further one can find information for example in "Das Herrenjournal" from
    April 1934, number 4 or "Uniformen-Markt" number 7 from July 1, 1935.

    The photo from post 1 I am still trying to figure out.
    It puzzles me.

    At a first glance he could be a commanding officer for
    (civilian) guards units, but he lacks the collar-patches
    and does wear a strange form of shoulder-straps.
    Is it possible to get a close-up from this, please?

    I can't make out the middle devise (between the pips).

    The square pips with a (round pip ?) is a strange configuration . I remember seeing it somewhere but can't remember where .

    Can anyone identify the uniform of the individual on the left of the photo?
    My first guess would be Ostbahn, but the visor is throwning me:

    Could be, according the collar patch form.
    But why the wreath around the cockade. This is
    not common for Ostbahn. The cockade yes!

    Seems the eagle is the emboidered form.

    The gent on the left of the photo is presumably Freistaat Danzig.
    But is he Police, Customs, or something else?:

    I think police, as customs did wear the coat of arms-shield for Danzig in top,
    until the introduction of the customs eagle!

    Photo from Ernst Stieberitz, the musical director for the
    band from the Danzig Landespolizei. The band performed
    for the last time in early 1936 and was then disbanded.

    Another unusual uniform. Smooth buttons on what appears to be a dark-blue overcoat:
