    Reibert according to books i have from Swords Winner and Commander of the Das Reich Aufk Abt , Kampfgruppe Das Reich and the Der Fuhrer Regt SS Obersturmbannfuhrer Otto Weidinger who has written all the Div histories of the Divison it was called SS Division Deutschland between 1/12/1940 and 21/12/1940 before becoming SS Division Reich , i guess he'd know

    Regt Deustchland and Regt Germania were the first Infanterie units of the SS VT in 1933- 1935 with the DF joining in 1938.

    Germania was transferred to form the carde of Wiking.

    cheers

    Another interesting doc where the unit is a Kampfgruppe. Do you know much about his wartime history , he won the EKII in 1940 but didn't get wounded till 1945 , if he had been with Das Reich all that time he was one lucky soldier !!!

    Wow Reibert exceptional photos my friend

    Have seen some photos of the parade before but mostly just of Weidinger and Wim Brandt, to see early photos of Fritz Vogt is very good

    Which one is Helmt Kämpfe ?
