Malte - I am unable to help, but it's a great picture. Pre-war? Steven

Malte,

Looks like the pre war Dunkelblau uniform. The rank badges on the man at the front look like those of a Vizefeldwebel. Sorry I can't be any more help than that.

By the age and fitness of them they look like a Landsturm detachment. Any blow up of the collar nembers great pic like you say.

Also have you seen he one at the back with the Meerschaum? And the lanky one on the third left as well-reminiscent of Dads Army)

this lot would have been safest in reserve guarding POWs I believe.
