Gents,

 

Here is an interesting set of East German School Crossing Guard outfits.  I recall that my police career seemingly started off with a white plastic cross belt and a tin badge along with a hand held stop sign at my elementary school.  So, potential East German Policemen likely wore these outfits as well.

 

This is a boxed set of a boy and a girl Traffic Police uniforms consisting of white caps, vests, etc. for the fledgling Traffic Policeman standing in the cross walks.  I have never seen another set but surely they were in every elementary school in the DDR.  School Crossing Guards taught every kiddie community responsibility and order.

I think it is funny... from the drawing, the boy gets the whistle while the girl does not!  So much for gender equality in the Worker's Paradise!

“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”
