    Very nice photos. The Scharführer from Wien also has a drivers insignia. I can't make out the badge on the pocket, might be a ski tinnie of some type.

    No, this insignia wasn't a qualification badge although it is related to the alpine areas of the Reich. It was an accoutrement authorised for wear by members of the district Hochland and all districts in Austria. They were also the only districts authorised to wear white knee-length socks as opposed to the standard grey worn elsewhere.

    Thanks for that Garry, do you have a picture or photo of the said HJ Edelweiss badge? I have a few cloth GebirgsJ insignia and cap badges and I would like to compare. I love the Edelweiss symbol I even have one on my keyring!!

    cheers

    Ah, okay. I don't have one on file unfortunately but I'm sure one of the members can help with a close-up pic.
