    Default Nskk poster

    My dad got this from a vet about 30 years ago.through out the years, I never seen another like it myself. he must have glued it to a thick poster board. We always got a kick out of it. the look on the officers face is priceless! I was curious what the members think about it.

    I thought you guys would love it. guest at the house have always loved it!

    I would really love to know what was written on the bottom. it appears to be expounding teh various theatres the NSKK are in.

    the artist did a hell of job with the smoldering background, and the figures expressions and definition are splendid.

    It says:

    "YOUNG EUROPE IS FIGHTING IN THE RANKS OF THE NSKK.
    Soviet aircraft attempt to attack a vehicle column of NSKK-Transport Group
    Luftwaffe. Ready for the defense, the Flemish and French volunteers await the enemy on the rolling truck-mounted anti-aircraft gun emplacement."

    Note the artist's attention to detail in depicting the various foreign volunteers' sleeve insignia in the painting; from left to right, they are:

    - Flemish (DM sleeve shield with "Wolf hook" symbol)
    - French (French Tricolore sleeve shield with "Francisque" battle-axe symbol)
    - Walloon (Rexists sleeve shield with "Cross of Burgundy" symbol)
    - Dutch (WA sleeve triangle with "Wolf Hook" symbol)

    THANK YOU......My pops is going to love to learn this!

    so its the eastern front! maybe it was hung in the streets or in one of the german administration buildings,located in one of the occupied countries that the GI's unit happened to be rolling through?

    Thanks, glad I could help! Please notice, though, that I have since edited my post as I had misidentified the Walloon shield for the AGRA version; upon closer inspection I found it has to be the Rexist version instead.
