Here is a very interesting photo of a young man in HJ uniform.

Can anyone guess where it was taken ?

Almost looks like the set of a film. USA? No idea, but once I got the thought of an American setting I could not shake it. House looks American almost. Weird!

Anyone notice anything peculiar about the uniform ?

Eric is right.

Camp Siegfried in Yaphank, long Island, NY. Owned by the German-American Bund.

What the young man is wearing, I don't know ... except it does not look like the photos of HJ uniforms I have seen here. The knife looks OK. Wonder how he got it.

that house is probably still there! Andy had a excellent photo album from the Mad. Sq. Garden event and more!

Seems like the youth had all the right regalia...



A search reveals a bunch of info,photos...
