Yeah Gaspare, that swaz on the patriot's arm mixing with hammer & sickle in the soviet star above the thundering clouds is set to create some real drama...the perfect storm.
This artist seemed know what was in store on the horizon.

Another pre-war card

yes another nice one..
You know, with lets say with certain Nazi regalia like tinnies and especially with something so visual like postcards you can see that the SAs importance had become less and less.. By early wartime their influence/power was greatly diminished...

I would think Hitler's will. Amazing something so powerful and key to his rise to power could be weakend so quicckly and effectively.
Night of the long knives sent a loud, clear message.

A undated photograph. Nov 9 ceremony??

Any info or input appreciated...(timeframe,unit,location...ect).
When enlarged the man on the left appears to have a blank collar tab and the others seem to have...feldherrnhalle?? No daggers, just sidearms.
What would be the purpose of the blank collar tab in this case?
Thanks

Sorry for the additional photo but for some reason pics seem to be very small these days (info on how to make them larger if possible with the 156 limit would be great). Posting picture closer to try to get more detail at the cost of losing some of the photo.

post 314 & 315..Don't know exact unit.. But they are SS for sure. Their cap devices are the early eagle and 1st pattern [early] skull..

Could the tab be a wolfs hook, or a lightning bolt?

You can always make a large scan then crop one or 2 guys and their upper half to see tabs, board , cap devices..

The Landjahr ran youth camps along similar lines to the RAD and the Odal rune/sword was their emblem.
For some great photos see:

Great idea Gaspare.

I did this and it appeared to be the number 1 on the tabs and not a wolfs hook as first thought. I could swear there's one soldier (6th from left) wearing a tab with the number 2.
Any idea what unit these numbers represented and what the significance of the blank tabbed guy to the left was?

Tristan- Great info to look into. Thank you for the link and giving me a direction get going in.

Many thanks to both of you for your useful help.

According to Angolia's "Cloth Insignia of the SS", the SS-Fuss Standarten wore tabs numbered from 1 to 125. SS-Oberabschnitte staff wore either blank tabs or tabs with the district name ("Ost", "Nord", etc). You can refer to the gallery "Collar/Shoulder Tabs - SS" in the GDC Reference Library located HERE.

Thanks for chimming in Tristan.
I agree... the award in question looks more like a cross than a star.

1 more press photo with Hitler reviewing troops.

Thanks Mike
Here a feldherrnhalle postcard with notation on reverse referring to Nov.9,1935.
Ceremony moving the martyrs to the honor temple I would guess.

Close up.
Appears almost everyone is wearing the blood order except one pallbearer in front 3rd from left. In the front of him, close to the lion resembles Grimminger imo.

Small photo with Ley referenced on reverse.
I'm not sure why the ss general has a band above the cufftile area.
The guy in the center looks something like Speer.

10x13 framed hand done art under glass (bad photo because of it).
The reverse has a cut out in the matting with faded penciled in artist name,location,ect...
To me it also looks like Zum Turken is mentioned.

There is a french translation page attached to the back and some other writing with no idea the purpose of.

Posting the french translation as best as I could get it using google.Sure there may be some errors.

Translation from frech page:

At the foot of the mountain the Emperor Karl is seated, his forehead full of worries.
He sends an eagle to observe and waits for his return with anguish.

In the greatest desperation and misery, a fighter and savior whose intentions are very noble. His action is guided by God.
Never before has such faithfulness existed.

And the eagle spreads its quivering wings.and lands on the small house

What have you seen in the land, tell me my eagle? Does not Germany want to think again?
My Emperor, I have seen in Germany a man who wishes to realize great things.
Fly my eagle and bring strength, perseverance, courage and fidelity to the homeland, for this warrior who has done so many magnificent great things. Let him see again the splendor of Germany.

And the crossed flag salutes the valley range
Heil Hitler! Who gives us freedom
