    i HAVE been a great friend with Heinz Steinmeyer for some years now as he was in camp 21 which is not far away from me, us close friends call him Unkle Heinz, every Christmas he sends me and my family a hamper with all the best German chocolate. Just recently he is taken quite ill and they have put him in a nursing home which he is not happy about,his words, as the Dr. said he had a mild stroke which he does not believe. A great honourable man who loves Scotland more than Germany.

    Thanks for reading Gary.

    A truly great story. Really great that you posted this.. I hope more people outside of our hobby get to read this..

    Too many German veterans have been cast in a poor light for decades because of Adolf Hitler.. I can't imagine what it would be like to go through all of that carnage and loss, only to discover what Hitler was really doing and then be shamed for it!

    Thanks again,

    Josh

    Thats Wonderful to hear, Again as previously stated by others it's sad the fellow does not have anyone who he could call a friend back in Germany or wherever he may reside. Cheers to the soldiers of WW2 who were not brainwashed pawn's.

    Many people don't realise how many Waffen SS veterans settled in ans still live in the UK.

    I personally know ones from the LSSAH , Totenkopf , Polizei , Wiking , RFSS , Latvian and Estonian !!
    I have met a few UK W-SS men myself (including Ukrainian, Estonian and Hungarian, just to add to the list), and I have to say, in terms of his decency and character, this guy is just like all the others. I never met a bad SS man, odd as that might sound in today's world of sound-byte bullshit.

    I would also say that in general, the ones I met never regretted nor changed their opinion on Nazism either.

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.

    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
