    [Below: The boy is wearing the first (unofficial ) sleeve badge for a Pimpf (the word 'Pimpf' is slang for any member of the German Youth Movement, but later especially of the Deutsches Jungvolk) qualified for fire auxiliary duties. It was later altered and combined into the fire, police and eventually bomb disposal badge. Interestingly enough, he's not wearing any recognizable DJ uniform suggesting it's either pre-1933 or most probably late war when the Pimpfs assisted in fire duties in any clothing.]
