Thanks again. I've since been told they would be "rural gendarmerie", would this make a difference?
No, and they are not:

The Gendarmerie was the rural police (as opposed to the Gemeindepolizei in smaller towns and the Schutzpolizei des Reiches in larger cities). All of these were branches of the order police and (of course) wore police uniforms, with the various branches distinguished by branch colors (and a few other differences, like the color of their uniform facings and leather equipment, although that was later standardized).

These men are wearing army uniforms.

No uniform. It's a civilian leather coat.

A visit of military attaches at Vienna to Theresianische Militärakademie, before Anschluss. Does anyone knows what country they're came from, based on their uniforms (apart from German and Austria)?

More likely Chinese Army men of Jiang Khai Shek though.

Some questions of an old thread, that was left unanswered ;

Is it a SA or NSKK man ? I can't make out the badge on the cap..but I think it's NSKK ( Kraftfahrraute on the left forearm )
Did NSKK officers graduate in the SA-Reichsführerschule (Tyr Rune ) ?
As an Oberführer rank (?), he doesn't have 'Tresse' around top of its kepi...Why ?

Thanks for your help

Speaking of NSKK... Is this an NSKK man? I haven't found anything that confirms that. Note the light and dark piping on the collar and shoulder tab.

'A' collar patch ( Red Wine ) is for Ausbildungswesens Staff ( Instructor Training )
Worn by a SA-Sturmabteilung NCO in this case

Aha, thanks! The SA isn't in my sphere of interests, so that's why I didn't recognize it.

A former Waffenrock dress tunic with wartime modifications for use as a field uniform.

(The Waffenrock was discontinued at the outbreak of war. Issued ones and unit stocks were collected and converted for field use by removing the pipings and cuff cuff turn-ups, adding pockets etc.)
