    Hello, everyone.

    My friend and I have a game where we go on internet searches to find people who look like us, in ww2 photos. I found this photo, but it raises red flags. Those are the SS cap, and Fj Smock and Bandoleer. If anyone could tell me about this photo, or weather or not this is a reeanactor that'd be awesome.

    Thanks.

    Yep, I'd expect to see whitewalls on troops at that time.

    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    He does not look like a wartime person, his hair is too long and his equipment too mint.

    I'm new to this hobby, but I am big into American Civil War. I have studied many early photographs and while you can have examples that are pristinely preserved they generally do show age somewhere. A patina if you will... This photograph shows no such signs of age. The texture is also off (too much yellow). I would cast my lot in as saying its a reenactor.

    Sorry he has the wrong hair style and his looks compared to people back in the mid 40's looked different and even as a black & white photo textures are wrong.
