If I'm not mistaken, the photo below was in the book "Twelve Years With Hitler: A History of 1. Kompanie Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler 1933-1945". The same session?

Several topics dealing with Musikkorps der Leibstandarte-SS "Adolf Hitler" have been merged.

The same occasion, but a different photographer it seems (it's the opposite angle).
Maikowski wrote:Nevertheless, I have always been wondering what the correct pronunciation for his name should be. I mean how did German people pronounce his name at the time ? Should it be the “german” pronunciation [mylǝrjo:n] or the « english » pronunciation [mylǝrdȝɔn] ?
Pronunciation of the "J" is the same as in the name Johann (John = Yohn). It's not the English "John".
Timo wrote:Müller-John [...] In 1945 he committed suicide in Austria, together with his wife and daughter. According to Lehmann this was his way to find peace with his involvement in the killing of 50 Polish civilians in 1939 (of whom several were Jewish).
By the way, I cannot believe Lehmann tried to sell this nonsense. So, right when it was official that Germany lost the war (and nowhere in the past five years), Müller-John suddenly decides to find peace - with his wife and daughter (!?) - because he felt sorry for the victims... Come on!

Cheers,
Ivan

A lot of fine LSSAH band photos can be found here: http://www.kriegsberichter-archive.com/

Just a couple of examples, from the SS-KB Gösling folder:

On the last photo it must be Gerhard Straubel, who's carrying the Jingling Johnny?

Two more SS-KB Bergmann's photos, apparently from France, 1940.

Photos of the LSSAH Musikkorps, this time made by SS-KB Weill. It must be France 1940. [Edit: it is Romania 1941.]

Yes, possibly.

Romania, 1941.

I've added to your post the first LSSAH band photo from this session, where some Romanian soldiers can be seen as well.

I planned to post the link to those too, thanks! :D

Ivan

You're welcome and thank you for the correction!

I have a question to one of the photos, attributed as Leibstandarte:
This image was marked by Ullstein Bild as Leibstandarte in Prague.
Not so long ago it was re-uploaded by Getty Images in a better dimension.
545921977.jpg
And here we can see the Totenkopf and not the SS-runes on their collar tabs.
My question is: Isn't that actually the Totenkopf-Standarte 9, Prag (later SS-Wachbataillon "Böhmen und Mähren")?

Thanks in advance!

No, it is Leibstandarte after all, it's just that the enlarged/blurred Sigrunen patches seem round-shaped and thus remind of death's heads.

Also, SS-T-St. 9 came to Prague in the 2nd half of 1940 and didn't even exist in Oct. 1939, when the photo was apparently taken.

Some more photos from the same occasion, from http://multimedia.ctk.cz/ (notice the Leibstandarte's Schellenbaum)

F201303191049101.jpeg
F201303191049501.jpeg
FO01280805.jpeg
According to the Czech archive, the date is 13.10.1939.

Cheers,
Ivan
