    A French Police/Gendarme Jacket with German insignia???
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Perhaps a French Police Jacket, but with the German eagle, it' s very poor soldier, only the eagle and the helmet are German!

    Almost certainly a member of some security/guard formation employed by the German military in occupied France.

    The photo says "France 1942/1943", which rules out Volkssturm.

    The military connection is clear from the breast eagle, which could never have been worn by any service/organization that was not part of or at least closely affiliated with the German armed forces.
    Missed the France 1942/43 part :-)
