Black SS uniform in wear, 1943

Article about: Dear Colleague, in contrast, here is an Austrian Allgemeine SS man, but I think of a higher echelon of command. I think colleague d'alquen originally furnished us this image. My wild guess i

    The black uniform was increasingly seldom seen, eventually being worn only by part-time Allgemeine-SS reservists. The last ceremonial event at which the black uniforms were worn en masse was the Berlin victory parade following the fall of France in June 1940. In 1942, Himmler ordered most all of the black uniforms recalled and stripped of insignia. They were sent east for use by the native auxiliary police units and sent west to be used by Germanic-SS units such as the ones in Holland and Denmark.

ID:	397239I am curious as to the source of your information. I have seen photographs as late as 1944 of the black uniform in wear. Although I agree it was seldom worn during the war period it was still the dress uniform of the SS and I have seen examples wih provenance that have the updated 1942 pattern insignia. Here is an example of same.

    Thank you Mr. Coleman. Your participation on this site and the knowledge you share here is truely valued by your colleagues. It seems someone did not read the preceding 10 pages before posting. As Mr. Coleman says there are many photos that show the black uniform in wear after 1940. This issue was discussed at length in this very thread by some very esteemed persons. Many thanks to all of them!!

    I don't claim to be any expert on the subject and I don't mind being corrected when I'm wrong. That particular bit of information is from wiki, I know it's not guaranteed to be 100% factual but as it says, the last time the black uniforms were worn en masse was 1940. I'm not 100% sure, so I'd be happy to hear the correct and accurate information. Are the photographs you're talking about in 1944 parades, rallies or ceremonies?

    Bob Coleman is absolutely right and there are numerous images of the black uniform in wear as of late 1944, i.e. the swearing in the Volksturm in Danzig, for instance.
    Bob's uniform is a fine example that we shared for awhile.
    Do read this thread, as it breaks with misinformation.
    Foetid misinformation.

    Black uniforms in Berlin were frequently worn, say, into late 1942.....

    There are many misconceptions on said score.
