    Default Opinions on Nahkampfspange Besitzzeugnis for an SS Unterscharfuehrer

    Hello everyone,
    I'd like to hear some opinions about this lot of documents. They are a Todesmitteilung and the Besitzzeugnis for the NKS in Bronze. Apparently, it was awarded posthumously, 2 days after the death of the soldier. I think that these are not genuine, but i'd like to have some experts' feedbacks. Thank you all, Elia

    I agree. Three observations:

    The letter has a lot of typos, spelling- and grammar errors.

    The seal stamp on the award document says "SS-Panzer-Division Wiking". However, in January 1943, "Wiking" was still a Panzergrenadier-Division.

    SS-Instandsetzungsabteilung 11 was a component of the "Nordland" Division, not of "Wiking" (which had Instandsetzungsabteilung 5).

    Thank you, I could not agree more.

    One look at the signature is enough for me to condemn that citation as a fake.

    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
