these lady were someone for fucksake,does anybody else see anything more except the skull and dwo crazy ladies at the battlefield or is it just me that cares?
anyway,this is perfect outfit of the day,for wurzeltod’s section,of course;]
Yes, this is a cropped version of the original photograph (posted here, source lost, could be Shorpy though) where the two ladies are clearly identified as “Die Kronprinzessin und Prinzessin Viktoria Luise in Uniform”
.. and here is a photograph of Generalfeldmarschall von Mackensen wearing the same hat style with his military uniform:
Which suggests that the ladies weren’t playing fantasy dress-up as some sites reported, but that these were genuine uniforms during the time of the Kaisers. The skull and bone emblems might look terribly SS to us now, but it was part of the Kaisers’ insignia (just like the iron cross), after all and a sign of honour.
Maybe this was just the fluffy winter version?
