Whatever its just an opinion.
Nice observation and knowledge Jerry. Thanks
Looking for the photo albums of Leutnant Emil Freitag, 3. / G.R. 377
Thank You for the Translation!! Yes, I actually looked into Truppenubungsplatz Ohrdruf Training area....very interesting. Seemed alot of different troops passed through there. Also after looking into Fuhrungs-Nachrichten Abteilung 40, I found the Kommander's name to be Oberst Rolff Gohring, who commanded the news-signals battalion 40 until 1942. Here is a neat link about the Battalion as well as photos of them at Ohrdruf Training area if anyone is interested: Fernsprech Bau
Also, thanks for the reassurance on the rank of the RAD Arbeitsfuhrer. I agree too, the tabs dont look to be goldish colored. And yes, I forgot to mention the Traditions badge in my description, thank you for noticing that! I have seen this badge on other period photos, but never knew the name of it or saw it up close...so thanks. And here it is: RAD LABOR SERVICE CAP BADGE : NATIONAL LABOR SERVICE (RAD) : German Empire 1933 - 1945 - Andre Huesken German Militaria

Two new ones. Just got a batch of 200 or so.
What's the story with this guy?
"Juni 1942. Unser Chef und Leutnant"
[= "June 1942. Our Commander and Lieutenant"]
[= "Our General"]
"Unser General / Uffz. [...]"
[= "Our General / Uffz. (= Unteroffizier) [...]"]
Here ya go, Don. These are some of the wallet size ones I just got. The bottom pic with the most writing goes with the 1935 one, and the second w/writing goes with the one below it. Wish it uploaded in the order I did.
