    Maybe. Or maybe it was just another TK murderous bastard that couldn't laugh anyway.

    Could be. But I cannot imagine that he would put a Heer eagle on his uniform just for a juming competition....
    And then there's the other picture of a TK-officer. He ain't on a jumping competition I think...

    That wasn't my point, just that he looked miserable. Wearing of insignia against regulations was a common occurrence, I wouldn't try to read too much into it.

    Yes, I understand. But I guess that more Officers did it because I've found 2 pictures of this practice at once...

    SS personnel on temporary assignment to Wehrmacht units or -schools for training purposes added the breast eagle to their uniforms for the duration of the assignment.

    The practice is seen in numerous period photographs.
