    Thanks, Ade. That would at least estimate this one as Third Reich era though, correct?
    No. The term was used before, during and after the Third Reich period.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Basically yes: The VDAV was formed in 1908. In 1936, it was re-named RDAF [Reichsbund Deutscher Amateurfotografen,] the name under which it went up to the end of WW2 in 1945.

    The immediate post-war years saw some provisional activites, mostly on a local/regional level and even the re-establishment of a VDAV Gau Nordmark in the British-occupied zone. In 1950, the VDAV was properly re-formed as a nationwide association.

    1991 saw another name change, now to DVF [Deutscher Verband für Fotografie]. The DVF is still very much active.

    German-speaking members can find a 1908 - 1998 chronicle of the VDAV/RDAF/DVF on their website:
    Deutscher Verband für Fotografie: Downloads
    (It's the "Die Chronik des DVF 1908-1998" link. You will find the triangular VDAV/eagle design as seen on the plaque on pages 16 and 92 of that .pdf-file.)
