One of you Bavarians can tell me best. I do not own the exhibit catalog on the NSDAP in Munich that appeared in the 1990s......or earlier.
Thank you F-B for presenting these photos.
The photos of the SS-TV Standartenfuhrer in grey and his companions in the Alps are interesting. Is it true F. F.Bauer became a member of the SS after coming to favor with Himmler over his photography skills?

I wonder if his prongs were crimped?
Heydrich's boss had "crimped prongs" on his cap for sure, as we have shown. The phrase "crimped prongs" encapsulates all that is wrong with this interest of ours.
I am sure the persons we depict, as they peer in on us from the remote point in hell, would also find this obsession with the most arcane, obscure and meaningless detail of the past to be more than ridiculous.
The photo of Heini H. (a total pedant, by the way and a world class fuss budget...as an ideal of many collectors of limited wits....) with the prongs of his Neusilber Hoheitszeichen crimped through the silken or Kunstseide lining of his cap burst the on line pustules of stupidity that have long afflicted these spaces, that's for bloody sure.
Inferiority. Ironic. The young man seen in profile in the background has a certain strength and nobility to rival any of the "master race"!
