It is, I think, the Munich Reichsfuhrerschule for SA, NSKK and ( up to 1934) SS Leaders.
In the photo I see at least one NSKK Officer, but no SS so perhaps this is post 1934.
I do not have it any more, but I seem to remember the inside cover of Charles Hamilton's book ' Leaders and Personalities of the Third Reich,' Vol. 1 had a photo very similar to yours and perhaps another Forum member could check that.
As to the neck award that is a mystery. I can only think of the PLM, but the image is unclear.

Good point... if that was the case wouldn't there be daggers?

I thought about the 2 awards being the pour le merite.
It appears the two highest ranking officers in the photo have the award.

Another Sholtz Klink card posted 1 day after the 1937 rally with typical Nurnberg party day eagle ink stamp.

On the big group photo, I would guess late 20's / early 30's when the SA were organized enough to have uniforms, but not 100% standardized.

- As noted, no daggers

- Some guys are wearing puttees, not boots.

- Rank badges vary in size and color

- Uniforms vary in color and the ties are not all the same

- The Kepis do not seem to vary by rank. No sleeve ranks.

I have an album of over 100 pictures of a Sturm in 1934/5 and by that time they had daggers, and standardized uniforms.

Postmarked from Berlin 29/6/39 and ink stamped Tag der Deutschen Kunst.
Beautiful script correspondence.
Any ideas on what the monument's plaque says?
Thanks

This Lion commemorates the Battle of Isted (1850) in Schleswig-Holstein, in which the Danes were the victors.
From the text it looks as though this statue is at the gates of the Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler barracks in Berlin.
A very rare card!
