    Thanks for posting the photos Stoney, they were from a local researcher here in Melbourne, Peter Imberger.

    RE: The surrender of SS-Brigadeführer Jürgen Wagner and his men in May 1945

    On 25-26 April 1945, there was heavy fighting in the area Prieros-Selchow and after heavy losses Kampfgruppe "Wagner was reduced to around 300 personnel.

    On 29 April a small group with Wagner escaped from the Halbe area and joined 12. Armee at Beelitz.

    On 5 May they reached Tangermünde were they surrendered to US troops on 7 May.

    Tangermünde is a historic town on the Elbe River in the district of Stendal, in the north-eastern part of Saxony-Anhalt, Germany.

    Not quite immediate captivity, but it still shows the dangers of displaying ones awards after capture:
