It does indeed have some police uniform detail, but Blakeslee's other book 'Police Uniforms of the World' is superb. It can still be bought on sites like abebooks.com, but is quite expensive.

Or you could borrow it thru interlibrary loan and Xerox it on your printer. The book's small enough to copy 2 pages at once.

On the Spanish Border

Hi Guys,
Found this photo on one of the photo sharing websites.

This one shows a Spanish Guardia Civil talking to German forces at a border control point.

The Germans don't have the usual FeldPolizei insignias, so not sure what they are. Anybody know?

Regards,
Les

Hi Neils,
Thanks for the info on the Danish Police, I didn't have much on them during this period and I wasn't sure it was for the period it was dated ,as open neck jackets with collar and ties were not the normal for this period, most police forces still had button to the neck uniform jackets.

Do you know why some men are wearing breeches and boots, are they motorcyclists or car drivers?

Best Regards,
Les

Carabinieri in Salerno 1943

Post  Les-Art on Tue 26 Oct 2010, 5:52 am

Here is an interesting photo taken by a US Government official photographer on D-Day + 2 at Salerno, Italy.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
http://i28.servimg.com/u/f28/13/98/25/75/salern10.jpg
It shows a US Officer explaning a proclamation by the Allied Government to two Caribinieri, while a British Itellegence Officer looks on.
The Carabinieri have been issued with Armbands reading 'CIVIL POLICE' and ? (can't read the rest anybody know?). They are wearing their standard working uniform, for town duty, which still looks pretty much what is worn today and they are still armed with their own carbines.

The photo is part of a series taken on 11th September 1943, two days after allied forces landed on the italian Coast and made their way inland.

Regards,
Les

Here is another photo from the Salerno group.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
http://i28.servimg.com/u/f28/13/98/25/75/salern11.jpg
This one shows a Captain in the Salerno City Police, sitting on a motorcycle, talking with a Carabinieri Officer.
They are both wearing the 'CIVIL POLICE' Armband. The City Policeman appears to be wearing a Military uniform, at least in cut and rank insignias, it is difficult to know but it could be a light blue colour common with many Municipal Police in Italy. The carabinieri is identified by the granade badge on his side cap, he is wearing the Military Uniform issued to the Carbinieri for Field work and looking at his breaches and boots he could be from a mounted unit, or possibly the M/C Rider. The Belt is of the type issued to Warrant Officers and Officer ranks but I can not see any other insignias on the uniform.

Add whta ever other information you may have regarding these uniforms.
Rehards,
Les

Salve. Belle immagini.
Both are Carabinieri: on left is an officer.
Sono entrambi Carabinieri: a sinistra un ufficiale indossa un'uniforme in tessuto migliore e con il fregio della granata ricamato.

Belgian (anti resistance ?) police

Post  giraffe6 on Thu 16 May 2013, 7:00 pm

Hello,

i have recently found this link, not too sure what they are, certainly not the Gendarmerie who wore dark blue uniforms, kepi with silver braid and red collar patches.

Belgian Politie Rurale

Post  Les-Art on Tue 28 May 2013, 2:15 am

Paul,
I checked out your link and had a look at the uniform. It will take awhile to translate all the posts.
The Cap badge is for the Belgian Politie Rurale(Police Rurale), they policed the countryside with special attention to the villages. I would say the roundel on the cap is for Belgium and not Germany, so this is probably a photo of a policeman before the war.
I'll see if I can find out more info.

Regards,
Les

Foreign Legions of the 3rd reich , vol 2 , David Littlejohn.

Post  zebra on Tue 13 Aug 2013, 7:15 pm

Hello,

does anyone have a copy of this book ? Do they just cover the military SS volunteers etc or include the various civil police or German raised police , especially for any anti- resistance/ partisan operations ?

Just wondering if vol 2 has anything about the Belgian Gendarmerie or other police.

Pat.
