I saw this photo on German eBay today and thought I ought to post it as it is a nice example showing the different kind of socks/stockings etc worn while on duty.

I've had trouble posting the photo so someone else might have more luck?

Great picture, Francy! I wish I'd seen it a few weeks ago, when I was checking lengths of uniform skirts!


By the way, because of the interest in this topic (posts and views), I've made the thread a sticky.

Best,

This thread is especially interesting for some of the Searchlight photos.

Where "photogenic" subjects are concerned, the photographer focuses on <ahem> "detail".

Very interesting, thank you.

Dear Sylvie,

Maybe you know this but the written inscription on the picture of the single helferin notes:

Herzliche grüsse aus den [...] Alpen. Eure Elke 7.2.45

Could be translated as:

Kind regards from the [...] Alps. Your Elke Feb. 7 1945

Elke was a common name in Germany and still is today. I can't transcript the word written before 'Alpen', though. Maybe someone else would be so kind?

Dear Ancasta,

This movie was directed by Werner KLINGLER in 1958, it was a black/white motion picture made in Germany (West) and German spoken. Starring Eva Ingeborg Scholz, Bert Fortell, Klausjürgen Wussow and Nana Osten. Klingler is also known from the movie Titanic (1943). He directed from the 1920s on until the 1960s. Some of his post-war work, as this one, has been released in the USA as well. Klingler died in 1972. I wonder if the girl on the poster is Nana Osten, I’m not sure. Nana played Renate Gontard.

Hi,

here are some new snapshots from me.

The top photo shows a Heer (Army) Nachrichtenhelferin-Oberführerin as indicated by the chevron and pip on the collar tips plus the piping on the cap and jacket collar yellow-aluminium-black. (Well, at least you can see that there's something black on the collar rim). What organization her friend is working for is a mystery so far. Originally I thought she's a SS Kriegshelferin but this does not seem to be the case ( ). Suggestions always welcome.

When the lower picture was taken the young lady seems to have been promoted to Hauptführerin rank at least. She's wearing a Führerin brooch and a shirt with some bright collar piping. The absence of black in the piping of shirt and cap indicates that she is beyond Oberführerin now.

Nice photo of mystery womens uniform. Its not a political eagle or SS from the look of the one on the sleeve.
I would have thought the shape of the one on her cap and the either dark blue or black colour would clue us in.
Could it be Customs service, maybe even DLH [Lufthansa?] or Foreign Office official or something like that?
