    I have this lovely photo album of a SS soldiers wedding day. I like collecting personal items such as these for they give a personal touch about moments in a persons life. Seemed like a happy couple! Not a looker by any means . I liked the photo of the female LW in her dress tunic with 2nd pattern dolch with portapee and knot.

    Note the totenkopf on the right collar tab, and he has a cuff title on the left sleeve of his great coat in the last photo

    Well, it's not her dress tunic.... Women wearing the uniform of their husband/financee/boyfriend for a photo was common enough (there are countless examples of this), but this is the first one I've seen showing a full swap with the man wearing his woman's dress!

    Yes; it's Oberbayern.

    The photo is rather odd. A total swap in clothing maybe a odd tradition or a joke of a photo op?

    That's no tradition; just having a bit of fun for the private album.

    As I said, having a lady wear a man's uniform for a private photo was very popular (despite being expressly prohibited), as the soldiers thought it to be funny and/or cute*. But going all the way... now that was not so common.

    Looking at the Waffenrock and wondering Artillery or Infanterie?

    Amused to see an Esso gas station! Their catch phrase was "put a Tiger in your tank." Now they are known as Exxon. NH
