    Thank you Dimas for posting an image from a very interesting period when the Politische Bereitschaften were an integral part of the take-over of the Concentration Camp system. I believe that photo of Gebhardt also shows him wearing the old Reichsheer shooting awards.

    please discard my above posting , I am wrong , although this document suggests this to be true d alquen position is correct . The SS trooper used a old picture on the document . Actually I am quite happy to find this out as I have the exact collar tab , so lucky me .

    To clarify the points Jim brings up, the collar patch with the runes and a numeral '4' was worn by both the Politische Bereitschaft Nord which was established in Hamburg in 1934 and the guard unit of Esterwegen Concentration Camp during the brief period in 1934 when the various Wachverbaende were included within the Politische Bereitschaften system.
    The document shows a young member of PB 4 after his unit formed the basis for the first battalion of SS'2'.
