    IMO it appears to be Jugendehrendienst possibly. If so a very rare jacket! Links to video footage and a photo of a rare sleeve insignia I used to have in my collection. Video footage is in Quicktime format.

    Dear Frank,

    Very interesting, it seems indeed the same jacket. So they did wear them only at the 1936 Olympics?

    It is my understanding that these uniforms were used only during the Berlin games. The Jugendehrendienst was made up not only of H.J. and BDM members, but other youths as well, and members of other party affiliated organizations such as R.A.D. and Studentenbund members. They acted as volunteers, liaisons, and valets to the visiting athletes. They provided translation services, acted as tour guides, assisted the athletes during completions, etc.. The insignia shown is the only example I have seen before, and was purchased on Ebay listed in the incorrect category. I had no idea what it was initially when I had won the auction but suspected it was a rare insignia. It is sufficiently rare that many members here and several of the well known German dealers had no idea of what it is. Thanks to Rob Newbrough, Wim Saris, and Clyde Davis for their assistance I was finally able to know what it represented. Here are additional photos from Rob that show this uniform in wear. If ever wanting to move it on, I am sure there would be interest from certain advanced collectors. Congratulations on obtaining this rare uniform item.

    Dear Frank,

    Would like to thank you very much with the help and indentification on this tunic. It will be available in time as it does not fit into my collection.

    Regards
