    I can't comment on the introduction date of the Party badge, but if the date of birth (31st October 1926; "geb." means "geboren" = "born") is correct, this young man was only 18 years of age at the end of the war and therefore could not have been a member of the NSDAP for very long, surely having "graduated" from the Hitler Youth to the Party. (Originally, the minimum age for joining was 18; in January 1944, this was lowered to 17 for Hitler Youth members.)

    Thus, this would have to be a late-war photograph from the 1944 - 1945 period.

    The other pin is a qualification badge of the DLRG [Deutsche Lebensrettungsgesellschaft = German Life Saving Association].

    A wise and upright parental decision... all the more so as it could have landed him in serious trouble had he been denunciated.

    He also forbid her to accept the monthly 20 Reichsmarks as a soldier's wife...He was a very old man, a strict Catholic, and too old for the Volkssturm even!
    cheers, Glenn
