Thanks so much for the kind words. The Nuremberg picture is from an album I found with some nice images of SS men in what I think is the Reichsparteitag 1935. Here is another. You see a version of the Ehrenwinkel with which I am not familiar, as well as the kepi with the piping.
The "ADEFA" label on a tunic does not correspond with any authentic item I have ever seen. This ADEFA organization did, in fact, exist, and
its logo is visible in adverts and such. But I have never seen it in a black tunic, that is, a real black tunic. The "Stammabteilung" item above enclosed
by colleague JHAM is, I think, like those I saw years ago from the no. German surprise package. All of these tunics were brand new, that is,
utterly as if made yesterday. The musician item here is not as well made, but there are surely a dozen or more varieties of contemporary black
tunic made since the 1980s or so, when the production of these went into overdrive. As to knowledge, it is a subject I am tired of writing about.
In our era, there is a lot of plagiarism and little willingness to buckle down and pursue something with any determination.
This contemporary regard of knowledge as a disposable commodity of little value is why I am less engaged than in former times.

and of arcane interest is this image of an SSTV unit visiting a gas mask factory in the environs north of Berlin.
Are these men wearing the earth brown uniform out of the barracks, which, I thought, was forbidden?
All these details.
That is a rare photo of the SS Cape .
Thank you as always for sharing !
Thank you for the images F-B. They are very nice. The Jenkins SS-TV album looks spectacular.
Fantastic posts as always F-B, appreciated!
Re: Post 23
The caption identifies these men as being from one of the training companies. As such, and still being in a probationary status, these recruits would not yet have been issued with their black uniforms.
Thanks so much for the fruits of your fine research.
