I still find it a verystrange picture and a still doubt it. why does he wear the badge on the flap?
Why doesn't he use belthooks and has his belt that low?
Why does he wear the EK2 in this way?

Yes ,I too agree that it is a strange photo but it came from a SS-FJ vet who also gave more such photos from this unit .Maybe he was trying to impress his new bride ?? Note his EK2 is hanging from a SS members pin .
To view another strange style "SS PHOTO" go to the Kriegsmarine section and look at the topic " Kriegsmarine with Narvik Shield" Here you will see SS Untersturmfuhrer Krause with the destroyer badge and Narvik shield been worn , he was a early SS member and part of Hitlers personal staff.
