    [Below: Wow what is that? Beautiful! It says: 'zum fünfzigjährigen Bestehen gewidmet von der betriebsgemeinschaft' which means 'dedicated to the fiftieth anniversary of the business community'. On the side you can see a D.A.F. symbol (swastika surrounded by a gear).]

    [Below: Men from the German Labor Front (D.A.F.). The shirts seem odd, the symbol is in a strange position on their shirts... I can't make out the upper symbol/patch on their shirts. Anyone have an idea?]

    [Below: The boy is wearing the first (unofficial ) sleeve badge for a Pimpf (the word 'Pimpf' is slang for any member of the German Youth Movement, but later especially of the Deutsches Jungvolk) qualified for fire auxiliary duties. It was later altered and combined into the fire, police and eventually bomb disposal badge. Interestingly enough, he's not wearing any recognizable DJ uniform suggesting it's either pre-1933 or most probably late war when the Pimpfs assisted in fire duties in any clothing.]
