Hello,

I recently acquired two HJ photos and I thought that I'd share them. Two of the boys have patches on their sleeves. Can someone tell me what they meant? Below is photo number 1.

Here is photo number 2. These boys are possibly brothers and may have been in the Deutsche Jung Volk.

John, the upper patch is the Tradition-arm-triangle / Area-arm-triangle, the lower patch is the Deutsches Jungvolk patch.

Hi GK,

Thanks for your help. So all three boys would be DJV members, that's very interesting. So the triangle patch would tell basically where the boy was from, is that correct? Can you see in photo number 2, where the boy on the right is from, based upon that patch? I can't make it out due to the writing being in that fancy script. Also, thanks for the websites.

John

Hi Michael,

Thanks for your help once again. So the boys in photo 2, were from somewhere in Thueringen. Where is that in Germany? It's too bad that the boys aren't identified.

John
