    It looks like a ''S'' shield, which in my reference book is quoted as being unknown but others may have a different opinion, there's one in the Goodapple book described as being taken from a black uniformed prisoner by a GI, two possible explanations are Fascist paramilitary,or factory guards unit??????

    I initially thought it was the Dutch SS Rune...but now I see the backgrounds are actually reversed...

    These men are with the Sonderdienst im Generalgouvernement; an internal security formation operating in occupied Poland. Also (barely) visible is the special sleeve badge for that organization.

    Photos of the Sonderdienst are relatively rare and relics of it even more so. For a little more, see:

    You will also find some rather good photographs of Sonderdienst personnel if you do a search for "Sonderdienstu" at the Polish National Archives:

    Ditto.

    Lovecraft strikes again.

    To me it looked like the prancing stallion of the 'Scuderia Ferrari,' thought I doubt their factory guards were that tenacious!
