Hans-Hermann has shared with us a good number of pictures depicting firefighting equipment and uniforms that were used during World War Two and after.

I've got one of those Luftschutzhelms that I got from an uncle on my last trip to Germany! Still looking for a photo showing it in use on the heavy FLAK guns, however. Anyone?

The Luftschutz operated as a civil defense force, post bombing raids rescueing victims, etc..., you'll not find them operating flak, that was for Luftwaffe personnel, by war's end, Hitler Jugend.
