    The following are the only three TR photos I own. Two I know what they are but the third I need some help with. The only thing I can see to help with identification are the belts on the men in the photo. Also the SS photo I am not sure if its period can anyone advise me on that? Thank you all in advance for your help.

    The SS photo doesn't inspire much confidence with regard to authenticity from the image above.....
    The other photo - NSKK perhaps? (At a guess!)

    I would agree with Adrian. The Waffen SS photo is a well known wartime image, but it looks like a modern reprint to me too. The runes and eagle stamp is bogus.

    The last photo shows men of the Heer, part of the pre war Reichswehr. The clue lies in the vehicle number plate. The crash helmets are similar to the NSKK style (which are all based in the motorcycle helmet of the day) If you look closely the buckles appear painted field grey.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thank you both. I also noticed that there seems to be a mock turret on the top of the vehicle behind the men. Is this for the type of "war games" that the Reichswehr were conducting before full re-armament kicked in?

    Regards

    Hi Jeff, you are correct.

    The vehicle underneath is an Adler Standard 6. Built 1930 -1932.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I like that Reichswehr group photo. The vehicles and helmets look so odd us nowadays and have an interesting, almost retro-futuristic look to them, a bit like something from an old 1930s sci-fi serial.

    Two more images of this type of vehicle:

    Don't think anyone has mentioned this ... the man in the top right photo is wearing a Police uniform.

    Someone may be able to tell you more about which branch he is in.

    Thank you, yes I thought thats that was. I bought this photo years back for about $10-$15. I like it a lot.
