That’s the guy from the German military Junta
Is that his worst enemies youngest child’s skull he wears proudly and menacingly in his elaborate head gear?
…and here he is, with some friends.
>His fame and familiar uniform gave rise to two separate Third Reich units adopting black dress with Totenkopf badges:: the Panzerwaffe, which claimed the tradition of the Imperial cavalry; and Hitler’s "Life Guards," the SS.
I wonder if that’s where the SS got its death skull symbol from?
Second Nazi: Have you noticed that our caps actually have little pictures of skulls on them?
Hans: I don’t… er-
Second Nazi: Hans… are we the baddies?
Second Nazi: I mean, what do skulls make you think of? Death… cannibals… beheading… pirates…
Hans: Pirates are fun!
Second Nazi: I didn’t say we weren’t fun, but fun or not pirates are still the baddies.
Second Nazi: [regarding the Allies] Their symbols are all quite nice! Stars, stripes, lions, sickles…
Hans: What’s so good about a sickle?
Second Nazi: Well, nothing, and if there’s one thing we’ve learn in the last thousand miles of retreat it’s that Russian agriculture is in dire need of mechanisation.
Hans: Tell me about it.
Second Nazi: But, you gotta say, it’s better than a skull. I mean, I really can’t think of anything worse, as a symbol, than a skull!
Hans: What about a… rat’s anus.

Also, that’s a great photograph.
When you have a skull motif as part of your uniform you have to contemplate if you’re the bad guys
“The germans started putting skulls and spikes on their hats to show that they’re the good guys”
How fast was that skeleton travelling when it hit the back of his head?! 😮
What was the skull made?
"are we the baddies?"
This guy is ready to smash some heresy in the name of the Emperor, beloved by all, and look good doing it.
Is that a baby skull?
Von Mackensen wore his imperils field marshals uniform to formal events with Hitler and it pissed him off to no end. Got to admire the balls in him
I’ll say it again. I dont understnad why they even bothered developing new hats after this. Clearly hat-technology had reached its zenith.
Pretty sure this pic is from the late 30s or early 40s.
