    Default Photos with DLV55 dagger.

    Colleagues, with this post I want to "ask audience" for help. I'm currently collecting information on DLV55 Dagger, ultimately with the view to create a reference website on manufactures of this dagger and their peculiar features. This dagger along with the SA dagger was one of the earliest patterns of edged weapon of the Third Reich. Also the time of creation of these daggers almost coincide. Due to my previous research on FHH dagger I had to scrutinize a huge amount of period photos from all available on-line stock image companies, so I`ve seen really many images, but I`m sure that in private collections there might be unknown to me images that can help clarify some issues and with my research in general. So, if anybody has information or relevant images, I`d be very thankful for your help. Below there is some information to consider:

    4. Walter Wever since September 1, 1933, the commander of the Reichsluftfahrtministerium. Since March 1, 1935, he became the first Chief of Staff of the Luftwaffe. Image as of 1936.

    The dagger was announced with a letter from February 17, 1934 from
    the Reichsminister der Luftfahrt (L.D. Nr. 344/34 geh. Kdos.D IV).
    I thought the development was started in about November 1933 (when
    the uniform was introduced - a dagger was not yet included). Surely
    Göring will have worn it as the first person.

    PS; are you sure the person is Wever with the fourth photo. To me
    he looks to be Milch? But I am not good with faces!

    The person is mentioned as Wever by Getty images and other photo archives. I`ve just posted other photos for comparison featuring Erhard Milch visiting National Flight day on the 1st April 1934 in Berlin. This photo features Milch wearing a dagger, but unfortunately there is only a slight trace of the dagger that can be seen. I`m trying to find other images from this event where the dagger could be seen properly.
