    I can only find several quotes of the "ost" regiment:

    31.05.1943
    Im Rahmen der befohlenen Umgliederung der „Frw.Legion Flandern“ zu der „SS-Sturmbrigade Lange-mark“ wurde am 31.5.1943 die bisherige Ersatz-Kompanie der Frw.Legion Flandern vom SS-Pz.Gren. A.u.E.-Btl.11 getrennt und zum SS-Gren.Ers.Btl.“Ost“ in Breslau (Genesenden-Zug) und SS-Gren. Ausb.Btl.“Ost“ in Shitomir (Ausbildungs-Züge) versetzt.
    Diese Ersatz-Kompanie wurde als Genesenden-Zug bzw. Ausbildungs-Kompanie SS-Sturmbrigade „Langemark“ in sich geschlossen in den Rahmen des m.Verf. des SS-FHA v. 15.4.1943 zur Umglie-derung befohlenen SS-Gren.Ers.Btl.“Ost“ Breslau bzw. SS-Gren.Ausb.Btl“Ost“ Shitomir eingegliedert.

    Damit wurde das SS-Gren.Ers.Btl“Ost“ zuständiger Ersatztruppenteil für die SS-Sturmbrigade „Lange-mark“, ausgenommen Spezialisten (s.d.). (WV, 31.3.43 ?)

    The question is why Espenlaub tagged it as Dutch as there is no info supporting it. Important to mention that the seller that sold my half EKM to me that it was found around Nowgorod (what supports the hypothesis that its Dutch, as they were participating in liquidation of the Second Shock Army).



    Your thoughts are highly appreciated

    What I understand from it is that it's about the Frw. Legion Flandern and Sturmbrigade Langemark. And they both are Belgian volunteer units and not Dutch. For example the Dutch where in the Frw. Legion Niederlande or in Regiment Westland from the Wiking Division.

    That is exactly the question, why Espenlaub has decided that its Dutch.

    Maybe someone at Espenlaub didn't do his research?

    It was most probably my mistake, due all of the tags used my description

    Now that it has been cleared up it is a nice original EKM !

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
