    Default Is this Waffen SS soldier wearing a temporary rank on his epaulettes?

    Just like to share a couple of photo's in my collection of the same Waffen SS wounded soldier. I was wondering about his epaulettes. Temporary rank? It's hard to see because of the camera flash but I guess that would be a Silver Wound Badge on his tunic? Thanks

    The double Tresse loops in the first photograph identify him as an officer candidate. (A single loop would mean NCO candidate.)

    Thank you! This might sound like a dumb question but here it goes lol...Would a Waffen SS soldier still be put into combat?

    You sure it's the same guy? Eyes, ear, mouth, chin, jacket, eye-patch all look different to me.

    I must ask - have you 'retouched' these photos or
    manipulated them in some way ? They look grainy
    and too dark, I'm thinking they are reprints.........
