    It is a Turkish volunteer. I am not sure what their battalion units were but it looks authentic.

    Actually that's Turkistan, not Turkey so not Turks, but rather Turkistanis; it's a country that used to be part of the USSR- between Afghanistan and Mongolia and above Tibet (touches India a little...) and below Kazakhstan. They're eastern volunteers- the Ostlegion folks.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    It is a interesting and rare piece of history.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.
