Thanks for making this a sticky, as well, colleagues.
what is the buckle ? right side second down ,i have never seen the like of it
Thank you to Mr Delich and FB for more rarities. All of these posts have been a great pleasure to see.
I would be interested to hear any more details about these items, especially the bottom right hand belt buckle, marked with 'Blut und Boden'. I'm wondering if it is something to do with the Reichsnährstand, although I didn't think that it had a specific uniform (seems unlikely in the TR...).
Love the cloth Bergfuhrer badge !

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

Some great Flemish buckles (Vlaamsch Nationaal Verbond, Vlaamse Wacht)
and the Einsatzstaffel Deutsche Schutzmannschaft (DM) in Croatia with the motto:
In Treue fest, when I am right!
Great to see more stuff from my good old friend David. Thanks for your efforts FB!
The bottom right has nothing to do with Reichsnährstand, but is DM with the motto:
EHRE, BLUT UND BODEN
"Wir sollen auch unser Leben für die Brüder lassen" (1.Joh.3.16):
zum Gedächtnis Wilhelm Schenk. Er starb fürs Vaterland am 13. Juni 1916
Can we see pics of the rear of the buckles and maybe closer pictures?
