    That is really interesting. I remember reading something about how Himmler ordered all members of the SS to trade in their black uniforms as a result of wartime shortages. All members began wearing the grey uniforms after 1942.

    Thanks. Himmler apparently ordered the SS VT people to turn in their black uniforms, which, if my collection is any measure, was an order only partially filled. The black uniform remained in use in the Allgem. SS until the bitter end. We have threads on this issue.

    This evolution of the SS from uniformed party thugees to political flying squad to armed paramilitary to conventional armored divisions is endlessly fascinating. IE: Politsche Bereitschaft München evolves into SSVT Regiment Deutschland. And in its final form is absorbed into 2 SS Panzer Division Das Reich.

    I need to better understand the SS Gruppen -- Sud, Mitte, Sudwest. Much of the early organizational effort seemed to go into establishing a chain of command, and having the lines of command followed. To me the "camel nose under the tent" that enabled the SSVT to develop as credible armed formations was the exemption of its members from the draft.

    It makes one wonder. If the Germans had won the war, what would the SS have evolved into next?

    The SS Gruppen were a territorial organization more or less on the SA model, which were later replaced by the Oberabschnitte, which were more or less the Wehrkreise. The reorganization of the SS in the years 1932 through 1939 is well covered in Koehl and Wegner, as well as other works.

    The evolution of the SS uniform in the year 1934 is especially evident in the Mitteilungsblaetter d RZM, as well as the SS Befehlsblaetter.

    Read Himmler's speeches for his conception of the future. The Germany-won-the-war speculation is enshrined in a wide literature, some of it science fiction and some of it more grounded in facts. However, the SS destroyed itself in the process of political violence in which it arose, so the question is moot.
    damit, basta.

    An example of the organizational change in the Allgem. SS in simply one Oberabschnitt in more or less five years.

    Thank you. Amazing to see these tables. I see an organization coming to grips with its own existence, with its own function.

    I am familiar with the Stammabteilung, but was the 8/15 Allgemeine SS member paid? Or was it a weekend warrior thing?
