    This is actually a pre-war photograph which I would tentatively date to the 1934 - 1936 period.

    The stripes on his sleeve have nothing to do with Spie▀ status; they are a Reichswehr-era shooting award. (Introduced in 1928 and replaced by the marksmanship lanyards in 1936.)

    His field blouse is an early model: It still has a collar of the same cloth as the rest of the jacket. (The first model field blouses as introduced in 1933 had a collar of field grey uniform cloth. This was changed to field-grey badge cloth as per orders of Dec. 1934 and finally to dark bluish-green badge cloth as per orders of Sept. 1935.) He is already wearing the breast eagle, which was ordered for the field blouse in Feb. 1934.

    The shoulder boards, too, appear to be of the early angular pattern. (Although this was sometimes worn well into the war years, of course.)

    Wearing an award-ribbon in the buttonhole flap was also an older practice commonly seen on photographs from the Weimar- and early Third Reich era, but occasionally on WW2 photographs as well.
    The ribbon in question cannot be for the KVK2. It is probably a 1914 WW1-era EK2. (Alternatively, it might be a 1914/18 Ehrenkreuz with the red center stripe appearing so dark as to blend with the black stripes framing it.)

    Here is a photograph taken in 1934 or 1935 (admittedly posted by me before) showing this model of field blouse as well as the marksmanship "stripes":

    Thank HPL2008, great info again. I did wonder if I had it wrong. Looking at the ribbon again it's a EK2 which makes much more sense, Cheers, Richard.

    I stay away from those 2 sellers. I got it from a guy in the states, who I won't name yet. He usually has legit pics.
    Sehr gut. There are at least 5 others who sell garbage like ""Adolff"" does who are on ebay. Their auctions are easily spottable because they use the same or same type of background as well as descriptions and such on all their auctions. They now have thrown a curve-ball into the deal because on at least 1-2 of their auctions, they now employ an American to do the "dirty work" as well as so that their descriptions dont look and sound the same. When I can think of it? ill supply all of their ebay usernames and such.

    That's a great photo of a 15cm Schwere Feld Haubitze 18 (15cm heavy field howitzer model 18) being towed by a FAMO Sd.Kfz.9, 18 Tonne prime mover, the Germans most powerful half track.
