    Theholeinthe donut and DNA are correct. The Herman Goring Division was Luftewaffe. Normally, cufftitles signified "elite" units, such as Waffen SS, fallschirmjager, Grossdeuchland, Afrika Korps, certain Luftewaffe fighter units, etc., or were awards for campains, such as "Afrika" , "Kreta", and "Kurland".

    Bachelor,
    Interesting photo of the Luftewaffe officer with the Liebstandarte Adolf Hitler cufftitle. I've seen a similar photo, I believe of the same guy, in Brian Davis' "Uniforms and Insignia of the Luftewaffe" (an essential for militaria collectors!).
    Thanks for posting all the great photos, most of which I'm seeing for the first time!

    Yeah. Joachim Pieper, reputed war criminal and unrepentant Nazi.
    Later murdered by alleged Communists while living in self-imposed exile, in France.

    About the officer of Luftwaffe with the cuff title "Adolf Hitler"...
    On photo of page of German book:
    ... Links: Diese ungewbhnliche Aufnahme zeigt einen Hauptmann der Luftwaffe, der entgegen samtlicher Vorschriften am linken Unterarm einen Armelstreifen der Waffen-SS tragi und zwar den der Leibstandarte SS "Adolf Hitler". Bei dem Offizier, einem alten Spanienkampfer, handelt es sich vermutlich um den Fliegeг-Verbindungsoffizier, der der Leibstandarte ais Verbindungsoffizier zwischen Divisionsstab und Luftwaffe zugeteilt war...
    If I have correctly understood German language... It is the uniform of times of operations in Spain. He is the officer of communication between an headquarters Waffen SS "Adolf Hitler" and aircraft units Luftwaffe. Aviation support of units Waffen SS "Adolf Hitler". Similarly now Marines planes units F-18 and Harrier in US.

    The Sicherheitsdienst (SD, Security Service) was the intelligence service of the SS created in 1932 by Reinhard Heydrich.
