    The Osttürkischer Waffen-Verband der SS was formed 1944 as 1. Ostmuselmanisches SS-Regiment with the support of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Hajj Amin al-Husseini, with the intention of expanding it to a division, Muselmanischen SS-Division Neu-Turkistan. The men came from the Turkic units in the Heer that were disbanded (450th, 480th and I/94 Turkic battalions), prisoners of war and men working in Germany.

    Thanks for that Nick, I had a quick look on Google and what I saw was it was just Russian POWs who volunteered to fight rather than rot in prison camps, a lot more detailed

    Perhaps also of interest are the two links in my first post here:
