    I think there are hardly any originals in USA. Croatian volunteers fought on Russian front and then later at home against partisans. Only Handschar division was in Italy for a while.

    Handschar WAS NEVER in Italy.
    You might be thinking of SS-Karstjager.

    Some propagandists often confuse the SS-Reichsfuhrer division with Handschar, it's pretty funny.

    They are many in the USA as the unissued originals made my Germany were brought back by US Vets.

    But if you want to talk about "deployments". Many Croatian/German divisions such as the 369th Kroat did have their NCOs undergo training in France and Germany before Russian Front deployments. Also, some Croatian/German police and engineering Units were in France.

    Whole unit was on training in Reich. I can't remember name of exact place right now, but I'll check it. What I said about armshields in USA is only my opinion....

    Btw, nice Order of Zvonimr you got there!

    Hey thanks! It's my favorite piece. I have medals bars as large as 9, but the Iron Cross with the Zvonimir Medal somehow always holds a special place in my heart. I got it out of Austria and it will be rather hard for me to find something that awesome again as one of my main areas of interest is the interaction between the Germans and Croatians in WW2.

    Neuhammer, Germany.
    The divisional patches and fezzes were issued during the last months of their stay there. They can be seen in Jan. 1944 pictures with the Mufti. The Croatian armshields were put on a little bit later prior to moving back to Bosnia.

    Does anyone have the square version patch? Was that meant to be used for officers or something? because I can find no rhyme or reason as to why some had the shield style such as Gary's, and some had the straight edge or square version.
