Default BW Walther P-1 in the Field Photos (60's, 70's)

Maybe you can help me:

Though the Walther P-1 was used by the BW for decades, I cannot find a single photo from the 1960's or 1970's showing a BW soldier with a P-1 holstered or let alone holding one.

Do any of you have any such reference photos? (Perhaps photos of relatives who were issued a P-1?)

Due to the fact that the P38/P1 was a sidearm for officers, Platoon leaders etc there are not many pictures. I wore my P1 for years on exercises with life ammo for security reasons. So I never took it out during exercises.

I would wonder if there are good P1 pictures.
