These are just spectacular. My thanks again to FB and Mr. Delich for opening his treasures to us.
Als die Nazis die Kommunisten holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Kommunist.
Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat.
Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter.
Als sie die Juden holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Jude.
Als sie mich holten, gab es keinen mehr, der protestieren konnte.
Thanks. They are indeed spectacular, as the Himmler uniform ( in another thread....) is the only one in existence. I am especially fond of the mess dress in the form here versus the monkey jacket with the alu badge.
My senior mentor has many, many more uniforms, of course.

Words fail me. Each tunic would be worthy of any museum.
Best regards, Patrick
outstanding material, and there are even way more tunics in this quality.
I wonder if he has an underground safety bunker for such material storage.
never saw that color Diplo with gold eagle on the sleeve before
Wow...TWO mess dress tunics!?! I did own one, once...
I note with more than some irritation that the addenda of these rather astonishing images draws far less notice and comment than another thread here with imports from another website, followed by much pulling of hair and silent film melodrama to no especially edifying end.
Such does make me seriously wonder what kind of person is often behind the screen name here and whether such persons are more interested in a digital platform for generalized rage or have much interest in rare, authentic SS regalia, as found in this thread or others.
Maybe one of you can give an answer?
...and it does seem to me that there are those here who have availed themselves of the generosity of others who, then, in a case such as this, when extraordinary material is offered, might proffer a word of thanks or recognition to David Delich in turn....I do not need any thanks nor do I expect it, but I think such is germane for 3d parties who support this site.
