A very neat picture Dave. And, I note that this guy is wearing the 1936 style cap eagle.

Hello,

This seller on German e-bay had a whole series of photos on this guy. Drives me nuts when these guys piece out albums to get every last penny for each photo. The "context" and history is totally lost, but I guess the money is the important thing.

On another point, has ANYONE ever seen one of these guys wearing a sleeve eagle? I know there was an earlier discussion re: an eagle being authorized, but never seen in photo, when they became the autobahnpolizei.

Regards,
Bill Unland

I watched it but then it flew up to about $52 for small but clear picture! Perhaps in this case the distruction of an historic album may have worked to maximize the sellers return, although it also makes me sick to see them constantly break apart such albums.

Good guestion Bill, I don't remember ever running across a photo of on of these guys wearing a sleeve insignia. Maybe someday, like the three feather!
