    I believe that this group photo is for an awards cermony for the War merit Cross ... the Highly decorated Jungvolk Leader earned his medals while a member of the Whermacht , problibly the Army and was too wounded to go back to the front ( his wound badge is either silver or gold). This was common... it gave the young men inspiration when a former member of the local Bann came back from the front and wore his combat decorations .

    You posted, just as I was going to press the button. And I agree.

    The War Merit Cross was awarded for firefighting during air raids, flak service etc.

    Interesting photos with soldiers transferred in the HJ Landdienst. Some are decorated with combat badges : IAB, PAB, wound badge, EK1, EK2 and even a LW paratrooper badge!
