    I think these volunteers are from Azerbaijan going by the armshields.

    The Soviet Union had a large Asiatic population.

    I have found some great pics this week of foriegn volunteers, including one black man.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The caption had read 'Korean' but a lot of those captions seem to come up wrong a lot of times. Did you notice the breast eagles? 3 0f them are kind different.

    That is the special breast insignia for Eastern volunteers. They were not supposed to wear the Heer breast eagle, being non Germans.

    The whole "Korean" thing is down to bad captions as you guessed.

    Cheers, Ade.
