    Paddy,
    he does not have a site. He sells from his personal collection on occasion to fund other purchases I think. Here's a link to the post on WAF's estand.

    I'm sorry but I know very little about this rare branch of the HJ.

    Just a little more on this Mark. I think the way to look at the medical boards is to see them more as indicators of the person's status as a doctor (or chemist etc) rather than seeing them as equivalents to HJ ranks. To illustrate that here's who would normally have worn the boards:

    HJ-Oberfeldscher - student
    HJ-Hifsarzt - intern
    HJ-Truppenarzt/Hauptarzt - fully-qualified

    Love the tunic by the way

    Thanks Garry for the additional information. What form a headgear and buckle would you use for this tunic?

    There could not have been that many Doctors with the very limited information and pictures out there....

    The number of medical personnel working within the 'Gesundheitsführung der HJ' are given as follows for the end of 1938 Mark (the size of the organisation reached its peak prior to the outbreak of war):

    4000 doctors
    800 dentists
    500 chemists
    40000 Feldschere
    35000 Gesundheitsmädel

    So, not many doctors as you say. I'm looking at various period and modern references here and it's proving difficult to get a clear idea of the numbers of those who had medical ranks and those who held regular ranks. If we knew that it would give you a clearer picture of how many of the 4000 doctors wore Truppenarzt rank.

    As far as the uniform is concerned I'm struggling as none of the sources I have here give clear information on the uniforms worn by the medical personnel who did not have a regular rank (Gefolgschaftsführer etc). Hopefully someone on the forum will be able to help more. It would be useful to know the reference used by Axis History for the picture Darin showed.

    Thanks for the additional stats Garry. They are very interesting.

    I too hope someone can help me out with this tunic. I would like to display it but know very little about the medical doctors and their uniforms.
