    Period photo for a Police (volunteer) wachtmeister from the Bavarian Landespolizei. This organisation was named as such from Nov. 1920 and was the generic name for both the order police (ORPO) and Protection Police (Schupo) in Bavaria.

    The back of the card identifies him by name, Polizei Hilfswachtmeister M.Harty, and places him at the Police School Bamberg, home of the IV Battalion of LPG 73. The reference to Landpolizei Goring indicates that his service continued into 1933/34.

    He wears the "steel" green tunic with black collar and cuffs. The collar sport the silver oak leaves worn on both sides. The fact the cuff appears to have no Bavarian tresse stitched directly around the top helps date the picture pre 1933.
