Dear friends,

recently I had the rare luck of getting hold of this slightly corny Helferin item on Ebay as nobody else wanted it :D . Unfortunately no more Helferin pics in it.

Best regards
Torsten

Hello,

You might be interested in this. I have never seen one before. Tho that does not mean a lot. It is for sale with a number of fotos of a BDM and blitzmaiden.

Nice, Steve! It's the cuffband worn by Heer Stabshelferinnen of Führerin rank and above. Below is a scan of the cuffband for enlisted ranks. It makes a great pair, to show them together!

Best,

Hello again to all of you!

Here's an interesting paper item. A Wehrmacht travel permit made out for two fliegertechnische Helferinnen (auxiliary aircraft mechanics). Paula Weigert and Friedl(?) Hopf were to travel from the women transit station in Munich-Oberföhring to Regensburg on Dec. 18th, 1944.

A bit more on female aircraft mechanics. These 1942 pics show one repainting the tail fin of a Junkers Ju-88.

The young lady in the first two pictures is doing some maintenance work on a Heinkel He-115 sea plane at the Heinkel works in Rostock-Warnemünde in 1942.

The last one is examing a Junkers Ju-52 transport plane.

The last photos both show members of the RADwJ which are working on a Me-109 fighter during their Kriegshilfsdienst time.

Great photos, Torsten! I especially like the detail that both women are wearing their Kriegshilfsdienst pins, even on their mechanics' kombis.

Best,

A really precious pair of brooches. I very much enjoyed seeing them so nicely arranged and depicted as in this photo.

I'm a bit sceptical that they were really allowed to wear them on their boiler suits while working. Just think of the pin getting snapped off and falling into the engine 8O

All the best

You've got a point, Torsten, in that they're most likely staged propaganda photos. But should we be worried about the plane's engine, or the pin? :D

Does anybody know what the color of the issue overcoats were for Heer Helferin? It may be the same coat for all Helferinen. Just curious if anybody had a color picture of the overcoat or even perhaps have one.
