Willi,

Those types of pins are for the Bundesrepublik Deutscher Soldatenbund Kyffhäuser(DSBK). Since the re-founding of the Kyffhäuserbund in 1952 it combines its reservist function with a shutzenverein function.

Regards,

Gordon

Just for additional info, that one in particular is the D.S.B.K.'s Bundes-Sportschützenabzeichen in Gold.

See here for an overview of their various shooting awards:

Genttttlemen,

I did not know what the pins with parts of birds on them, shown in my pin collection above, actually were until today. I have a similar thread running on the GMIC and a chap posted the following on that thread "The green pins with parts of a bird are awards for a special traditional competition, called "Vogelkönig".
see this link." https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=rMeZ5LzcuvA

Regards,

Gordon

Gentlemen,

Time to start posting pictures of some of the tunics in my collection for the Schutzenverein. This one is from HANSTEDT. Here is a link to this clubs web site http://www.sv-hanstedt.de/ There are some interesting pictures on the site showing the many activities one of these clubs provides for its members.

Hi,

the usual German word for such a competition is "Vogelschießen", and the winner is the "Schützenkönig" or "Vogelkönig".

You can shoot different parts of the bird (Vogel), and afterwards you got the particular medal (needle/order) for it.

Please see for example parts of a bird
https://fotos.verwaltungsportal.de/s...4da0_vogel.jpg

and some possible medals in variations

Each year at a Cincinnati German Club they have a Schützenfest, and the focus is shooting a wood-carved eagle;

Gordon, that is a nice tunic. I never knew anyone collected these, nor did I know any were available to collect.

Uwe, thanks for providing the Baumann link.

Uwe,

Thanks for your interesting post and interesting links.

Willi,

There is a story behind this type of tunic/s that I own. Several years ago I started conversing with a chap in Europe who had access to what he termed a "rag mill". He was able to get uniforms, badges etc. out of the mill before they were reduced for recycling. He was able to acquire a number of tunics, complete with the badges as they existed when they were disposed of by their former owner, before they were destroyed. My attempt at saving a little bit of history. Here are a couple of pictures showing what was removed from numerous shooting club tunics before they were destroyed. Also, there appear to have been some tunics from hunting clubs as well.

Regards,

Gordon

The next tunic is quite different from the first one which seems to be pretty much the standard wear for sport shooting associations in post war Germany. This tunic was worn in the Kyffhäuserbund Landesverband Bremen-Weser-Ems e.V. Here is a link to their site. http://www.kyffhaeuser-lv-bwe.de/mai...%2Findex2.html . They say there purpose is;

The Kyffhäuserbund is a democratic Volksbund with over 200 years of tradition. Every respectable citizen who recognizes the goals of the Confederation and is committed to the Basic Law can become a member. The Kyffhäuserbund conducts active reservist work, promotes sports and in particular sports shooting.

One thing that I have never been able to work out is the cuffbands worn in different shooting clubs. Wear of the clubs cuffband is not universal and I would like to know why some members wear one and some don't?

Regards,

Gordon

Another tunic from my collection that has a cuff band and a lanyard attached. Not unusual for many of these clubs.

Regards,

Gordon

More of the above tunic. The shoulder boards are removal as loops have been used to hold them in place.
