Note that they are still armed as a British Staghound (?) passes by. In the original picture (which is somewhat better quality than this one), the trousers on the guy nearest the camera are splinter A pattern. You can also see the gorget chain on the man furthest away.

I've seen this picture in several books over the years, with varying dates:

1: October 1944
2: July/August 1945
3: January 1946

Problem is, all are theoretically possible. If it is the latter, they could be Feldjagerkorps.

You can't see it here, but the guy nearest still has his breast eagle removed (not that it helps date the photo particularly!).

It might help if you knew where the picture was taken mate. Looks like a schloss or something?

Exact location is unknown (original photo has no annotations on the back). It has been put at Luxemburg or the French/German border - but these are purely supposition.

French German border is pushing it abit isnt it? I mean I could understand them being used in areas in Germany etc but as border (/traffic) guards? I dont know really, my opinion is that its probably somewhere like Frankfurt, but then I'm not exactly knowledgable on Feldgendamerie :?

Could be anywhere in Western Europe, more or less!

True, but look at the architecture. What was the original question again? lol I mean it would make sense if they were feldjägerkorps I suppose, but were there other types being employed at the time?

Feldgendarmerie and Feldjagerkorps were both employed in this manner - the latter lasted longer and remained armed until 1946 (making the later date possible).

Architecture is not uniquely Germanic. My significant other (who knows these things!) has said its a style fairly general to the Continent, but it looks 'revivalesque' rather than old, if you know what I mean.

Ahh right, you learn something new every day.

RE: Architecture, I totally agree, revivalesque as in the Victorian/Edwardian era whereby all the landed gentry built stately homes to look like castles?

Yup, pretty much - like Gothic revivial during the Victorian period.

Are there tram lines on the photo?? If so I think it might be a spot in Prague
