This Gefreiter seems to have silver bullion type piping...even around the tabs. But has an EM eagle, and boards, as well as cap. So Am I missing something here, or is it just another "against regulations" uniform? Also neat is the summer/lightweight m43.

Looks like some kind of specialization or waffenfarbe.

Here is a really nice photo i just picked up off of ebay. It's two brothers, one is a pilot with his 1st model lufty and his pilots badge and the other is a mystery to me. Any help would be much appreciated.

I know, I thought of that Kevin....and still not sure what to make of it. I don't have any other photos showing this either, so was interested to see if anyone had opinions

RYAN- that's an excellent portrait. The man on left looks to possibly be from a Flak unit. Note that he does not have a breast eagle on his bluse, but his Brother does. So most likely this is an earlier portrait

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
