    Thanks, colleague. Might I ask whether you can find and scan the image in Vol. III of Mollo that shows several officers in early grey caps with the 1927-9 Hoheitszeichen? The officers are looking through a scissors sight scope in the field.

    I believe this is the photo you requested.

    The SSVT officer looking through the Scherenfernrohr is Georg Ritter von Hengl.

    Perhaps the two images below are of interest here, as well. They show men of the 49th Standarte (headquartered at Braunschweig, then Goslar) in grey uniforms. It appears they were taken during some kind of (para-/pre-/post-) military training course or field exercise.

    (I don't really collect photographs, but very occasionally, if I come across something that is both interesting and inexpensive, I make the odd purchase. These photographs were such a case.)


    A group shot in a jolly mood. The tunics are worn with regulation A-SS insignia as worn on the black uniform (only one shoulder board, no sleeve eagles):

    Photographs of A-SS personnel with field equipment and rifles are rarely seen. Note the black peaked cap worn by the man in the background. (It has the second pattern national eagle, so we know the photographs were taken no earlier than 1936.) Also note the the lack of any decals/insignia on the WW1-style steel helmets:

    HPL,
    Thank you for sharing those excellent shots. Pictures of Allgemeine-SS personnel in the grey uniform are hard enough to find, but group shots are very scarce. An interesting study indeed.
    In the shot of the SS officers on manoeuvres in 1936 I don't think it can be von Hengl as I believe he had resigned from the SS in 1935.
