Help needed to identify uniforms

Post by tbgffpolis » 16 Jul 2021 19:51

I've found these pictures while doing genealogical research and was wondering if someone here can help me to identify the meaning of the uniforms on these man. Unfortunately, I don't have any dates on the pictures or details about their military careers.

Hello ;

First uniform is for a Zollgrenzschutz ( Customs Border Guards ), has a rank ( Zollbetriebsassistent ) equivalent to
a Feldwebel ( Sergeant ) in the Army.

Small second and third picture are Army enlisted soldiers, both are wearing a special tunic called 'Waffenrock'.
The man with spectacles belongs to the Infantry branch.

Obergefreiter in Waffenrock
