    Here's all I could find. The man in the glasses in the front row 2nd from right is wearing a (non-converted) waffenrock. The man to his left may also be wearing a converted waffenrock.

    In this famous image the young boy shaking Goebbels' hand is certainly wearing a converted Waffenrock.

    You meant period photos of converted rocks in wear or a photo of an actual one?
    If the latter here is my cavalry converted Waffenrock.

    Thanks!

    I was hoping for photos but these are still very useful.

    When they converted waffenrocks did they take them from a surplus of parade uniforms, from a dead soldier's family or from a volunteer alive soldier? I doubt many who wore the waffenrock was still alive at the end, or even 1944.

    I wonder how many Poland invading Germans were alive at all at the end!
