    Curious (firefighter?) pic

    I buyed this pic and identified it as firefighter. Looking at him I still believe it is a fireman but... could be another thing aswell. He wears one ribbon with one "1" over his chest. Whats that?

    Interesting photo Albrecht. There is nothing mentioned about these in the main regulations regarding the HJ-Feuerwehrscharen but the provision of training, uniforms and equipment of the HJ-Feuerwehrscharen were the responsibility of the respective municipal districts so this patch may well have been a local thing specific to one municipality or even town. The HJ-Feuerwehrscharen were organised into the following units so I would agree with you guys that the patch in the photo is denoting the wearer's membership of either Gruppe 1 or Zug 1.

    Gruppe (smallest unit)
    Zug (2 Gruppen)
    Gefolgschaft (largest permissible unit)
