    The earth grey uniform was worn for active duties while the black uniform was a service uniform.

    The 2 in post 13 look like they may be brothers.

    The photo of the MG user was taken from 1942 or later, but it looks like instructor and pupil, but which ones which, also noticable is the two SS VT men, both wear their chin strap buckles on the left, and the man on the right is due for a right rollicking, he's missing a button on his great coat

    I agree that the first photo is early circa 1934/35. All of the men are still wearing the model 1929 pattern national emblem above the totenkopf.

ID:	341402There is no officer in the first picture which is, as Bob Coleman suggests, likely from 1934 or 1935. It is likely a Biwak of some kind, or some other field exercise sort of thing, i.e. construction of temporary quarters. This image is not of 8 November 1938, though there exist images of the Allgemeine SS( in black uniform) in Baden-Baden engaged in the pogrom. This man might have participated. The uniform was tailored days after the event in question.

    Great images there FB, thanks! You're right, I think Krystalnacht is off the cards for sure; as to a similar event, it's very difficult to say. It does look a lot like ash to me - could it have been a book burning or something?

    I agree Will, it's the first thing I thought on looking at it. The shape of their faces and those strikingly menacing eyes are remarkably the same. The coincidence of them not being related in some way is, I would think, unlikely.

    Disappointing that Forum members, either jokingly or thru ignorance portray or assume solely, negativity towards the Waffen SS, I myself have had the pleasure and good fortune of having grown up around five of these fine gentlemen.
