    Luftwaffe Wehrmachtbeamte a.Kr in the rank range of Oberfeldwebel. (Werkmeister, Prufmeister, Assisteten)

    These were Admin specialists brought into the Luftwaffe "for the duration only" as they possesed specialist skills.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thank you very much!
    I was asked to identify this picture. I thought about admin, but had no reference for it. I only have valid infos on "Beamte auf Kriegsdauer" for the WH and not LW.

    Hey Ade,

    You are absolutely correct! I would go further in adding that he is of the "Medium Career Level". This means that he has graduated High School and has a valuable trade skill needed by the Luftwaffe. Please see the link below for more details.


    This is a very seldom seen and under appreciated area of research and collecting these days. Since they were typically noncombatants, they draw very little interest from most.

    Here is some information I put together on this seldom seen branch of the Luftwaffe. For me, it is a favorite!

    I really love that photograph! I have not seen a Sonderfuhrer with an EK2 ribbon before!
