Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

He sure is! But on the other hand I am wundering would the soldiers that captured or guard them know the significance of the badges on the guy's sleeve...? ...and what if a relative or friend of the guy (the British one!) died in a destroyed tank....

Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!
Is that what the three slashes on his right sleeve are, I was wondering?
