    I do not know if anyone has noticed this but in this series of photos in Mathausen Franz Ziereis, commandant has a politcal eagle on his cap as a Sturmbannfuhrer but at the end of Himmler's visit he is promoted to Obersturmbannfuhrer, has been awarded the KVK1 and has changed his cap eagle to a regular SS version.
    The photographs were taken on at least two different occasions, not during the same tour.

    Note that Eigruber wears his black SS uniform in some photographs, but his NSDAP Political Leader uniform in others...:

    ...or that Himmler wears high boots in some images, and ankle boots with rolled-down socks in others...:

    ...or that some photographs show Karl Wolff wearing a closed-collared field blouse while others show him wearing an open-collared tunic:

    Thanks for the detailed reply (as ever).

    But it destroyed my mental imagine of Himmler making him take the non regulation eagle off

    Cheers, Ade.

    Himmler: "Alright, Ziereis, if you promise to take off that eagle, I'll promote you and give you a medal. Deal?"

    The man was such a disgusting weasel, both in looks and everything else.

    Great hats though!
