Excellent photos that show aspects of the "Kameradschaft" so often spoken of by these men with their shared experience during WWI...
Interest in Stahlhelm items is growing among older collectors, and prices have risen accordingly the last few years...
I picked up this scarce 1935-dated Der Stahlhelm newspaper a few months ago...Feel free to move as it's not headgear.

Nice photo,s Theo
You really should create a book
Yes it is time for a really good book made by you
According to me you're working on it ?
From volume 2 from the headgear-series, page 229:
Heinrich Klöschen (or Hinrich Löschen as I possibly have taken over his
name wrongly during a Stahlhelm-meeting in 1988), standard-bearer from
Wilhelmshaven-Rüstringen in the period August 1926 and August 1932
when he went from the Jungstahlhelm into Stahlhelm. In the gorget book
this photo was on page 86.
Heyst: why are you always pushing DRK for a book? He may not have
the time or whatever. Maybe he not even is interested. Did you ask him?
You have no idea how books are being made, that's obvious, but you
think you know. You're the man!
You do not have any idea how much time one has to spend for a sufficient
book, and how much photos one needs. Photos just taken from the Internet,
with a low resolution, are not enough! But you know better apparently!
Much what is shown in this thread is taken from the Internet (except Spandau).
What I did show comes from personal albums from former members, I met many
years ago, and from the former Stahlhelm-Archiv!!
For those interested a Hinrich Löschen from Wilhelmshaven LV Oldenburg-
Ostfriesland was granted the Wehrsportkreuz for 5 years with a quite low
