  2. Hi Morten, Your Komandantur Wilhelmshaven tally photo is the third "Kommandantur" photo in this thread. They are rare. Also very nice Torpedoboot Albatros photo. Here is a Torpedoboot Leopard tally photo. Cheers, Larry
  3. General Frithjof von Hammerstein-Gesmond. Any ideas on what foreign decorations he is wearing. Cheers, Larry
  4. I forgot to scroll down to the bottom of the thread. Seems we both contributed photos there.. Cheers, Larry
  5. Hi Morten, I found this link with some useful information. http://gmic.co.uk/topic/20501-luftwaffe-general-luftzeugmeister-quotglquot/ Cheers, Larry
  6. Hi Morten, That is a nice photo. Every General Luftzeugmeister photo that I have seen has different insignia or the same insignia but not in the same place on the uniform. One sees G on one collar and L on the other in some photos, but in your last photo the GL is on the right collar. Also the GL badge is not worn in your last photo but has been replaced with small pin type metal insignia. His tunic pocket flaps are of the scalloped type which remind me of the Austrian pre-war uniform. Your top photo shows the Luftwaffe eagle worn on the tunic but seems to be missing in the other two photos. Also GL is on his shoulder straps. So it would seem that there wasn't any uniform/insignia standardisation in that organisation. Cheers, Larry
  7. Very nice and uncommonly seen photo. Here is one from my collection. Cheers, Larry
  8. Hi Justin, Incredible collection with some really hard to get patches. Cheers, Larry
  9. HI Alexander, It is amazing that after all this time buildings that were old at the time the photo was taken are still standing today. Cheers, Larry
  10. My pleasure. It looks like German troops are standing quite a way off shore and that is exactly what they are doing. Captions on the back of the photos state that it was -30 deg. F. when the photos were taken and that the sea had frozen solid enabling them to walk quite a way out to sea. Cheers, Larry
  11. A little more about the last two patches from Angolia & Schlict's Die Kriegsmarine - Uniforms & Traditions vol. 2.
  12. Nice hard to find photos Morten. Here is an update on my collection. First lot are pre-1940 and are hard to come by. Top L- R: Motorenlehrgang III (Motor course III). Kraftfahrer (Motor pool/driver). Verwaltung (Administration). Bottom row L -R: Spielmann blue and summer uniform (Drum and Fife corps). Stab patch for the summer uniform. (Staff). Also added: L - R: Enfernungsmesser mit Unteroffizierlehrgang (Range-Finder with training as NCO). I have also added two patches most often called as Heer career patches. The same two patches were worn on KM uniforms as well. Marinewalloberfeldwebel (Navy Fortress Maintainance). Marinefestungspioneeroberfeldwebel (Navy Fortress Engineer). Cheers, Larry
  13. From the same series as the photo above. An officer who has lost his left hand tries to take a photo of a small dog. Cheers, Larry
