    Default Reichsführung-SS officer photograph

    I found an interesting picture of an SS officer attached to the Reichsführung-SS. I do not have the legal permission to post the picture here directly, but the picture can be found from the link below:

    This officer has his other collar tab censored, which would indicate that there is a symbol in there. But I thought that Reichsführung-SS officers would wear a blank collar tab? Can anyone explain this?

    He's a Waffen-SS officer who has been detailed or transferred to the Reichsführung. As such, he surely retained his runic collar patch.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Thank you, I thought that could be the case, since the man has an iron cross second class and a wound badge to indicate that he's been in combat.

    One more thing, would a Waffen-SS officer retain his runic collar patch no matter where in the SS he was transferred to, for example, the Sicherheitsdienst?

    It would depend on the circumstances of his assignment: If he was discharged from the Waffen-SS and fully taken into, say, the SD or the Allgemeine SS, he would have to adopt their insignia.
    If he remained a Waffen-SS member, he would retain his W-SS insignia.
