I just recently got some pictures of the HJ/BDM in the Ukraine.
What area triangle would they be wearing?
I will post the pictures as soon as I scan then and get the rest of them in.
There was no official triangle for Befehlstelle Ukraine as far as I'm aware. It'll be very interesting to see the photos.
Yes , Please post scans .
As far as I know these youths from eastern areas just wore an armband of their nationality .
Yes i can't wait too see this triangle
be very interesting to see these pics
I will try and post the pictures on Tuesday.
The pictures were official photos taken for Oberbefehlshaber der NSDAP Claus Selzner in Dnjepropetrowsk.
I do not have them all yet.
I am going to post the whole grouping even though not all HJ/BDM related.
I will hopefully have the rest later this week.
OK - It is impossible to read what is on the triangle.
I can only make out that it is 2 lines.
1st line looks like a 3 letter word and the 2nd line is a rather lengthy word.

Difficult to know without seeing more photos/information/dates what exactly is going on here Bobby. It would be cool to see a high resolution scan of the leader's triangle in your last picture if you can upload one. I'm pretty sure it will show that the boy is German HJ though.
Thanks for the bigger scans Bobby. After looking at them I'm fairly certain that the triangle on the concert photo is Ost Generalgouvernement. Poland shares a border with the Ukraine so a visit would seem to be the logical conclusion. If I could see a Bann or Jungbann number on those straps I could confirm that 100% but I'm confident that the triangle is Ost Generalgouvernement.
The Kameradschaftsführer in the other picture seems to be wearing an Adolf Hitler school triangle. Possibly 'AHS/Heiligendamm. What does everyone think?
