Actually this is my Battailon (2nd German Air Force Ground Combat Supporting Btl.) and some of my closer comrades are amongst the guys on this pic. The Soldier with his son in front is the old Commander Lt. Col. Schwarz saluting goodbye to his men. He was a very charismatic and experienced Soldier, I personally met him once and got to talk to him some time- I consider him a role model. This was the Ceremony to hand over the command to the new Commander Lt. Col. Buß. That's not long ago but I got there only some weeks later because I wasn't able to leave the University sooner. I even got to talk to the new Commander then.

To the uniforms: It's German Air Force service parade uniform with the dark blue beret, only allowed to be worn by Air Force Infantry Forces.


Funny that you ask- how did you know theres a connection?

Unfortunately not. Its always very risky because in Germany the left radical threat against such parades is very high (that's why at the anniversary parade there were only invited guests allowed...). The upper picture was taken from the "großer Zapfenstreich" at the 50 anniversary of the Federal Armed Forces.
But sometimes there are some "Zapfenstreiche" eventually each year in different parts of Germany. My father was commander of a big Zapfenstreich in Würzburg to honor the closing of the communications btl.. I don't know when those events will take place, I could keep an open eye though...

Judging by the size and shape of the barrel, I would guess it to be a T55 or T62, not a T72. Excellent pictures though, if you have more please post them.
