Clothes don't always make the man

As a military medals and badge collector I am always  looking for pictures of medals and badges being worn. The pictures must be clear enough to identify the medals and badges being worn. Such pictures are not common or easy to find.  The majority of these pictures are postcards from the early 1900’s since  it was very common back then for professional photographers to print studio portraits on postcards which were then mailed to friends and relatives.  Years ago while President Reagan was still in the White House I found this little gem at some show. Inspite of the uniform I still don’t think he looks like a genuine Third Reich soldat. Maybe it’s just poor type casting; what movie was that anyway?
