Hello Gents,

Can anyone identify the agency that these officers represent?

The reporter at left is identified as Ter Horst.

The officer at right can be seen carrying the F.W. Heym version of the Mauser Kar-98k. It was often referred to as the "widow maker" as the receiver walls were notoriously thin and prone to exploding when the rifle was fired.

The image is stamped "May 15 1959."

All the best,
