    Finally getting around to it, here are all the West German BGS photos I've accumulated.

    A large portion of them are from, and many more can be seen at:
    https://www.beim-alten-bgs.de/Zu_den_Kameradenseiten/92_Hans-Jurgen_Gienke/92_hans-jurgen_gienke.html

    Again I claim zero credit to any of these photos, simply reposting them here in a collection for collectors to use as period uniform/gear/weapon reference and for their historical value.
    There may be a few regular Polizei/GSG-9 photos mixed in there, intentional or not.
    As per last time there may be some duplicates, or reposts of ones from other threads, and I will try to include relevant info that came with the photos if it is available, but
    as you've seen I often get things wrong and some of the included captions may be incorrect which I may have not noticed, so please feel more than welcome to add your own corrections/observations!
    Anyway, enjoy!
    -Nate

    The following are actually Bundeszollverwaltung officers, but thought I'd throw them in because they are neat pics anyway.

    the man with the Kampfmesser is actually Bundeswehr wearing a BGS poncho! (note the beret badge).

    The 2 "reenactor" photos are bad 90s recreations from the Peterson camo book. The smock ("Anorak für Skiläufer") was worn as a windbreaker over the service uniform for ski/mountain training (and definitely never shirtless under it!), never with the camo trousers and cap. WW2 y-straps also never used by BGS. The rubberised poncho was part of the 2nd model Sumpftarn uniform, so use with 1st model would be rare (but possible for short time in late 60s).

    Correct, the men with Stens are Polizei, specifically West Berlin. They used Sten as standard SMG in 50s-60s instead of Beretta used in other Länder (different supply system, because of their status).
