Nachlass Flemish volunteer

Sunday, August 19th, 2007

On the picture we see a convolut items that could be send back to the relatives of a volunteer KIA.

The black box, is a box that also was used as nachlass box.  This box was very short used, I noticed that relatives whose relatives were KIA in the beginning of 1944 (Ukraïne) became the nachlass in this type of box.

The other box was used for the relatives at home to safe the letters and pictures they’ve got from the volunteer.

The moneybag has two original ss decals runes on it… so it is clear that some volunteer got decals to put on there helmet… but this one used it for his money bag.. :-))

The decorations of this volunteer were safed in a nice Langemarck frame..

The Kp. führer normaly wrote a condoleance letter to the relatives of a volunteer KIA.  Here we see a letter from Schellong (Kdr Langemarck and KC) with his condoleance for the widow of this volunteer. 

We notice also his diary and a lot of frontpictures.

And all this material is lying on a ss flag, that came from HQ of the Flemish general SS in Brussels.

Nordwest

Saturday, August 11th, 2007

Himmler encouraged to raise, on 3 April 1941, a second volunteer reginment for young men from Flanders, Holland and Denmark.  This was the Freiwilligenstandarte Nordwest.  They also had a cuff title Nordwest witch was only used several months…  The 1st, 6th and 8th Companies of the Nordwest Regiment were Flemish.
