"Ostermänner" is the composition they are playing. [It was a Schlager medley by Willi Ostermann. Ivan Ž.]

Unknown Luftwaffe Musikkorps

Post by Teppeny » 02 Jun 2019 16:11

Hello everyone, I found some pics of a speech that Léon Degrelle made in Palais de Chaillot (Paris) on march 5 1944.
I have no clues about the Musikkorps except that it's not the Herman Göring Musikkorps, because on the pic, the musicians don't have the Herman Göring division cuff title. Can someone help me to found wich Musikkorps is here ?

Here is the pic:

A more zoomed pic to see the details:

The pic is from this awesome archive website https://bibliotheques-specialisees.pari ... 60224/0005?

Many thanks,
Teppeny

Not sure about the band but I'd say the conductor is Paul Haase. Can anyone confirm this?

The conductor does look like Haase, but what puzzles me is the lack of cuff-titles on bandsmen's uniforms. I assume that Haase didn't wear his old "General Göring" cuff-title after becoming a Musikinspizient; so, if it's him, the band should be of the "General Göring" Regiment; but then why no cuff-titles on the others' uniforms? Of course, there is also a possibility that Haase did wear his old cuff-title as a Musikinspizient and that he even conducted several bands on this occasion (the photo shows only one part of musicians). Or it's a different conductor after all. In any case, more photos from this concert might help solving the dilemma(s), at least partially.
