    ahhh. Okay.....that clears it all up concerning the collar tabs Andreas. I still have alot to learn with these new "career" Beamte men. I had no clue they were variants for "duration of the war" and reserve/recalls. Thank you for the link, it will come in very handy for me to learn the new info, and thanks for clearing up the "sonderfuhrer" thing, because that would have confused me further on that link. haha. And okay, I have seen that Stahlhelm badge before, but never knew the correct name for it. I have never seen one with this early of a date to be honest though. I really enjoy the Stahlhelm photos, I learn alot from the uniform variations. The eagle has me beat though, because the only eagle I am really familiar with that faces left is the 1936 political eagle...but as you said it wouldnt make sense. Thanks again for your responses and the helpful link.

    Hermann Goring Field Division Portrait w/ M43 ---unfortunately no writing on back, only thing that stands a chance of proving HGD is the tabs that are barely in veiw. I still like this one alot tho. Love the M43 caps

    I'm sure this is of little interest to most but having been in the glass business for some 45+
    years I never saw tempered glass used at that time, or didn't notice.
    I knew they had laminated glass and would have thought that is what would be used in a vehicle.
    It breaks much easier but stays in place while the tempered as seen in the picture blows out.
    That's all fine but my thoughts would be that used in the field laminated glass could be cut on site
    while the tempered requires the process of going through a furnace and can never be cut.

    Sorry guys ... I'll get over it.

    HPL, the RAD man to the left is at least an Arbeitsfuhrer, right?? Is there any other way to tell other than the shoulderboards if he is a higher rank?

    Not at all. It requires a furnace to heat it, then it needs to be cooled and all in correct temps and times.
    I'm thinking it with stood more bouncing around but once gone it was all gone.

    Not that important really ... I guess we see what we do like we are what we eat.
    Is there a beer smilie?

    Rudy ... enjoying pictures

    Arbeitsführer or higher is right, yes.

    The same type of collar patch was worn by the ranks of Arbeitsführer, Oberarbeitsführer and Oberstarbeitsführer. The general officer ranks of Generalarbeitsführer and higher also wore this design, but executed in gold rather than aluminum embroidery.

    The exact rank can only be told by the shoulder boards. Those worn by the man in question are not quite clear enough to be 100 % certain, but they do not look like the interwoven gold/silver/gold cords as worn by general officers and appear not to have any rank pips. Hence, I would tentatively identify him as an Arbeitsführer.

    (By the way: He looks a bit like Heinrich Himmler in his younger years, doesn't he?)

    Oh, and note the traditions badge for Arbeitsgau VI (Mecklenburg) worn by the officer on the right.
