Portrait - pls help identify uniform

Article about: I agree with sSterbebilde, I think the sam brown belt and the boy's age(he seems juuust a little too young to be in the Army to me) point to him being in a group like the Pfadfinder or Chris

    Default Portrait - pls help identify uniform

    Recently I received this portrait but honestly, until now I couldn't figure out what type of uniform the man is wearing. Is it even German? Also, what might those two badges be on the right breast pocket? Any help identifying both the uniform and badges would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance!

    Cheers, MB.

    Almost looks like a police uniform or some sort, and there is something on his tie as well, but I cannot see it. The pin looks like a Masonic pin? But I could be wrong

    Looks like a German uniform of Some sort,though,to me. It has what looks like pebble finish uniform buttons and Some sort of armband on the left arm Just out of sight of the camera! An Arrogant looking kid,in any case! William

    Here's a photo of a West German kid in 1959 that I found through google, looks similar doesn't it? The first photo looks a little older though.

    I still wonder,though why does it Look like there is an armband on the left sleeve in the proper place? Did West German uniforms have armbands? William
