    Oh, by the way, I never asked - how'd you know they're political leaders? Is it the armbands? The belts? Just so I know for future reference...



    Robbie
    Yes, all the things you mentioned are correct....as well as that those are Political caps in wear---note the Political eagles w/ lack of skulls/etc. Coats are brown I believe too.

    From the picture all I really saw was the prominent black band on the cap, the long coats, and I couldn't really see the eagles. Thanks for the clarification - at least this trio still look menacing...
    Oh, and I only just noticed all of the photographs you posted. They're excellent! I'm a stickler for the ones showing the cap in wear so I've liked your post with my two favourites on thanks for showing!

    Stewy, I like the Feldmutze one - here's another one with a Feldmutze I also hope to buy, I think of a KZ guard?
    Personally, I think he is a member of the SS-Totenkopfdivision (SSTK).

    The Totenkopfverbände (SSTV) [i.e. concentration camp personnel] and this division - which originated from the original pre-war camp guard formations - both wore the "death's head" collar patch; thus it is not always possible to tell one from the other in period photographs.

    What makes the SSTK more likely are two things:

    He is wearing a combat decoration (note the EK2 ribbon in his buttonhole) and the Waffenfarbe [branch color] on his cap and shoulder boards appears to be far too dark to be the light brown color for the concentration camp branch. (More likely black for engineers.)

    For additional illustration, please see here for a good image of a political leader wearing the exact same type of uniform and insignia as the men in your photograph (click to enlarge):

    Excellent, that's very useful, thank you - seeing it close up makes it much easier to see in the initial photograph.
    And ah, really? Yes, what you say does make sense, I did notice the EK2 but I suppose I thought he'd been assigned to a KZ after service. I suppose it's still just as interesting, anyway, thanks again for the help.

    Not very much. It's a wartime photograph. The bridegroom is a Waffen-SS NCO ranked Unterscharführer (note collar patches and shoulder boards); the other man is an officer (note cap cords and belt).

    Good eye Patrick. However, the paper shown in the Ebay auction is okay. It is period paper from what I can see. It is always a red flag when you see your photos on Ebay, but in this case....I am assuming that there was more than 1 copy when printed. So as long as Robbie's photo is on period paper, I think it is okay. Alot of family and group photos were printed in doubles.
    (most likely it is on the same exact paper too, as they were probly printed together)
