    These printed sleeve eagles did exist. I have seen photos of Prinz Eugen troops wearing just such insignia. I will find the photos. However I have no idea if the example shown is period or not. Thanks

    Nice to see that the Rottenfuhrer pictured seems to have transferred from the Kriegsmarine and wears his original awards.

    Here is another example showing a printed sleeve eagle in wear by an NCO in an Estonian unit (also of interest is the Heer camouflage pattern of his uniform:

    Late-war transfers of "surplus" naval personnel to the Waffen-SS happened. The Skanderbeg division is a good example: After the bulk of its Albanian members was discharged, some 1,800 sailors were transferred in during November 1944.
    Another large-scale transfer took place during February/March 1945, when a naval training regiment was sent to the SS-Panzergrenadier school at Kienschlag for re-training and re-assignment to various SS combat formations.
