German female in a Panzer tunic and cap. I'm pretty sure that there were no women tank auxiliaries, though I may be wrong, so she's probably wearing a husband/man friends', or relatives. Nevertheless, it is revealing of a fashion to portray women in various uniforms in Nazi Germany. The rank seems to be an Obergefreiter, with the General Assault Badge clasp on the front (another indication that the uniform is not hers). Not sure what decoration the ribbon signifies, hazarding a guess it could be the Iron Cross, but difficult to tell without colour indication.

If you were in the service for a time you surely may have experienced that women in general like to pose with their boyfriends/husbands headwear or uniforms

Hi Max,

I would assume a uniform of the "DRK" (Deutsches Rotes Kreuz), the headgear at that time speaks for it.
Unusual were the high boots, probably a higher-ranking lady from the management level..?

Thank you, Hans. Likely a Red Cross armband as well then.
Cheers,
Max

Yes, that makes sense, simple female members of the DRK at that time certainly didn't drive around in such a car, but rather on bicycles...
Unfortunately, the armband from that time is not exactly recognizable, but it probably speaks for the organization at that time...

Hello Forum.

Is it not the Todt organization uniform ?
The female branch had a Tirol style hat
I remember a photo of a very tall woman wearing it

No, the official "Organisation Todt" Armbinde was completely different, sorry.
