    A further titbit on the BFC , on the 22nd of march they where ordered to move to the HQ of the Nordland div at Angermunde , from there they where sent to join the divisional armoured recon batt ( 11 . ss - panzer - Aufklarunsabteilung ) in Grussow . It was here that the BFC where to nearly go into combat but where pulled out in April before any combat was seen .
    On the 19th April the BFC had a surprise in the form of a man called Douglas Berneville - claye dressed in a black ss tank uniform with the rank of Hauptsturmfuhrer who had come to lead the BFC into battle . This didnot happen as cooper basically told him to go away . Claye was the only member of the BFC to of been an officer in A squadron 1 SAS .
    Not sure where Adrian Weale gets his info from , on 22nd March Nordland were in the process of reforming after the withdrawal from the Alddamm bridgehead , they were in the area south west of Stettin , German sources only state that during the first days of april a small squad of British volunteers who had been assigned to SS Panzer Auf Abt 11 were returned to the Korps Staff to carry out a medical role.

    That's it nothing about Steiner inspecting the BFK or a Hauptsturmfuhrer being given command , what sources does Weale quote in his book ?

    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
