    If he is looking in on this from Vahalla, will likely thinks that we are all very nuts.

    A site that is well worth visiting.

    Of note (among many other things) are Kriegsberichter Homann's photos of the Heydrich funeral, although these are well-known.
    More obscure and thus even more interesting are Kriegsberichter Drr's images of the Hungarian Ethnic German Waffen-SS volunteers and Kriegsberichter Fritsch's photographs of other Hungarian Volksdeutsche wearing the uniform of the Deutsche Mannschaft.

    Oh, and the dog-loving RKT is, of course, Gerhard (Gerd) Bremer.

    Thank you, colleague, you are always a great help. I must confess that I do not concentrate on Ritterkreuztraeger, being more oriented to persons in black tunics, ethnic cleansers and mass murderers and such.

    I have seen these Waffen SS pictures from the National Archives for over a generation. There was an odd little book of them published here in the US in the late '60s and the '70s as contact prints and such.

    In any case, I added the link for the use of those here, since, as Uniformkunde the material is compelling.

ID:	542062Thanks, Andreas, for the tip about the Heydrich funeral images. I had seen what must have been Bauer images of this event, but not precisely these images. Danke vielmals.
