    Not 100% sure Ben, but I would say the Feuerwehrmann is early post war - 50ies or so!

    Best,

    Guido,
    Nice picture - late forties, early fifties Fireman ?. I've found a wartime picture a soldier in a strafbailione in Africa with 999 Afrika leichte Div, he's seen wearing belt and buckle. Also a picture of some text from "Afrikakorps" Tropical Uniforms of German Army 1940 - 1945 by Scipion & Bastien - page 58 deals with the uniform of penal battalions I've red stared the sentence giving the buckle description. What do you think?

    Hi Alex, sadly the guy you show is a Frenchman and it is a modern reconstruction photo taken from a book. (I have it) I have met several of the lads in the photos when I visited the South of France.

    Cheers, Ade.

    It's still a nice buckle to own if it wasn't too expensive!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    "3 mal kurz gelacht" as we Germans say!

    I think Alec, you should check your sources before posting here.

    Best,

    Any thoughts on the reference book Guido ? good source or fantasy publication ? You can read the write up yourself, title is there, authors are there, even the page number is there. Your comments are welcome, oh course without any rancour.
    Best Wishes
