    Hi,
    I would say they are NSFK. See here http://www.danielsww2.com/page3.html

      Hi Larry,

      So you think these were NSKK men and not HJ or could it be a mixed group?

          The men standing are NSFK. The rest look to be HJ. Nice photo of the NSFK beret, quite rare.

            BDM girl

            IMO the pic of the BDM girl, the buttons on her jacket are not the standard issue kettle jacket type.

              Hi,
              Stug III, I believe the case being carried is the hard-case for protecting the accordion while it is not being played!

              Best wishes,

              John.

                HJ with edelweiss badge

                Here's a young HJ, possibly DJ, withan edelweiss badge on his collar. Anyone know the significance of this badge?

                  The Edelweiss was worn by HJ-members from Obergebiet Südost

                    Hi Henrik,

                    Thanks for the link. So the boy in the photo, was a member of the Austrian HJ. In the other thread, it seems like the leaders were the ones ordered to wear it. Did I read that correctly? The boy in my photo seems a bit young to be in the HJ, do you think he was still in the DJ at the time the photo was taken?

                      HJ and little sister

                      Here's an HJ member and his little sister. He appears to have a signal patch on his sleeve below the unit patch. Can anyone read that triangular patch?

                        He is wearing a HJ armband.

                          The patch is a DJ membership patch.

                          He is wearing a DJ leader lanyard.

                          The triangle is

                          Ost
                          Schlesien

                            Hi,

                            Thanks for your help. Is Schlesian a town or district?

                              Schlesien/Silesia is a region in Central Europe located mostly in Poland, with smaller parts in the Czech Republic, and Germany.

                                Thanks for the help. So this lad came from somewhere in what is today Poland. Very interesting.
