Mixed Uniform

Post by Bagaudas » 15 Nov 2021 13:02

Good Morning.

I have found in a magazine this photo in which Guderian is seen, inspecting an instruction unit, according to the data in the photograph, located in SS-Panzerfährschule "Wriezen", his side an apparently SS-Standartenführer, but it does not seem so to me , or it looks like an officer attached to some kind of special units, it could be an officer of the NSKK, the badges of the bay leaves, they do not look like those of an SS-Standartenführer of the Waffen-SS.

The picture seems to belong to a series shot during a visit of general Guderian to a NSKK training tank unit that was equipped with old Pzkpw IV Ausf D tanks overhauled with new 75/L43 guns and other upgrades. The tanks, painted overall in dark yellow, were marked NSKK on the front mudguard.
