    Nice photo! Possibly post-'boozy lunch' given the somewhat cheesy grin and man-hug nature of the guy center row, second from the rear?

    Don't understand why this photo is in the cloth headgear section?
    Just me, or?
    I don't see any form of headgear here, just heads!

    The photograph was taken at Café Restaurant Breitling-Plesdonat at Münsingen in Wurttemberg, location of a major military training area.

    Does it still exist and is the Schnitzel, Wurst or "helles" good there?

    I don't think it still exists. I researched the restaurant's name (as seen in the photograph) and only came up with historical picture postcards etc.

    Does the man in the centre of the front row have a bandaged head? It looks like that he might have but the photo isn't so clear. I wondered also if he might also be a member of the SS - it seems to be a photo around the time the Nazis took power, when I understand the SS were wearing both the new and 'traditional' uniforms; it also looks like he might have black rather than brown breeches.
