Default Kurland Cuffband in wear

It would be nice to start a sort of database with wartime picts with Kurland cuffband in wear.
Some picts are on WA reference section.
Hope something more pops up here...

Anyone likes to start?

Note that Müller is wearing a cuff title, that is of a much rarer manufacture than we usually see! A rare version!

I have had it, but sold it many years ago. Don´t know if the buyer still got it, but I think so. Came from Colonel Dodkins collection.

I find it a little eerie looking at the studio portraits of soldiers wearing the Kurland cuff title. It is so late in the war, and the horrors they have lived through, but in that moment they just seem so serene and well dressed, as if Sunday service is but moments away. Makes me shiver a little every time.

Have you noticed that there is something missing on Bidermann's uniform?
