    Marine Flakhelfer

    There were a number of Marine Flak emplacements for instance in Kiel and Heligoland staffed by Marine HJ.

    Did their uniforms differ from the Luftwaffe grey/blue uniform cut into the HJ style ?

    The Navy flak helpers wore in normal operation - depending on the climatic condition - in the West the simple fatigues, in the East the typical gray soldier uniform with a winged grenade on the shoulder staps.

    As a dress uniform [Ausgehuniform] they wore the traditional navy uniform, but only the board's cap [Boardmütze] On the left forearm they had a light blue armband with yellow text Marinehelfer or Oberhelfer. They also had to use the HJ armband, but they often often removed it.

    Thanks for that info Henrik

    Do you know roughly how many Naval Flak emplacements there were?
