Jim nice photo....I don't see a badge is he a FJ Pioneer? Is his photo in the Wehrpass as well?

Eric I really like that FJ photo with the early bandoleer.

Here is another FJ wearing his helmet and Jump badge

Bill,

Why would the EM in the fliegerbluse be wearing adjutants aiguillettes?

Cheers,
James

Hi C Whitney Welcome to the forum! In order for you to post photos or sell items on the E-Stand you must become an Association member which costs $25. You could also send them via email to one of the moderators and they can post them for you.

James, No that isn't a adjutants aiguillette it's a duty lanyard for special duties as duty NCO worn during his tour of duty. It could be for loading transports or supplies, munitions etc. Bill Petz

Hi Bill-
Niemeier was with 12/ Sturmrgt. The photo in his WP is with civvies. I wish I had a truck load of FJ pics to post, but it seems that you lads have amassed them all. All the best

Jim,

That's great...too bad you don't have more on him but at least you are fortunate enough to obtain what you have. I've been gathering FJ photos together for the past 16 years while in Germany. So I have amassed a good amount of photos and not just FJ but FJ are my favorite. Here is a KRETA Pic
