    Nice. Good move.
    There is just something about these PPs and PPKs. Not least the simple elegant lines.

I agree and cannot distinguish either among these objects.

    Granted Patrick's elevation of the button to cult status, I must count how many SS buttons I do, indeed, own.......I had never thought of the project.

    You are too Kind Friedrich, I would have fake buttons if it weren't for you and the other gentlemen on this forum. And a thanks to the gent who notified me of the buttons and the belt loops.

    Each button has its own poetry, It would take a while to count all your buttons on your foetid woolens, surely. I cant see any belt loops like mine on your woolens, were they used only in the Waffen~SS?

    Post your favorite SS Item!!Some black tunics surely do have the side hooks, but I did not count them as buttons, per se. I did count the belt hooks/buttons on the back of the tunic, though.

    I Just got a great WAFFEN SS group photo 9x6 in. I tried to get as close as possible but still cannot ID the CT's. I wonder why not all the soldats are wearing belts?? There are trucks behind the group as well. Also , the soldier in the front center has a small pup! I also see what looks like a panzer badge on the man with the crusher cap.

    Well done. The group photo remains a central institutions of life in the militaries of central Europe.

    Please allow me to qoute my musings on the W-SS group photo as posted on the "New Photo Pick-Ups" thread:

    We can tell from the uniform details that the photograph was taken at some point of time well into the war, yet all of the men - even the Spieß (sitting near the center in the second row), the other veteran senior NCOs and the officer - wear no or only very few awards and decorations, and those seen are of a very common and low-level nature.
    Combat-/assault badges of any kind are completely absent, and even the few buttonhole ribbons might actually be for the KVK2 instead of the EK2. (It is often hard to tell the difference in black and white photos.)

    All this leads me to believe that they are not from a combat unit, but serve in some kind of rear services/support role. They might belong to a supply column, vehicle depot, maintenance unit etc. The fact that they are posing in front of some trucks and that the group includes an army-trained Schirrmeister, i.e. a technical NCO in charge of motor vehicles (the third man from the right in the second sitting row) additionally supports that.

    As for the cuff titles: It is impossible to positively identify them from this photograph, but I agree that they appear to be different ones, while most of the men wear none at all.
    This group could be from a unit not (yet?) authorized a cuff title, while the men wearing cuff titles simply retain those of their previous assignments. (This had always been a common - and eventually officially authorized - practice.)
    Another possible explantion is that this is a mixed group of men from different units, photographed during some kind of training course.
