    Hello Dimas,

    As far as i know Sturmscharfuhrer was a Waffen SS rank equivalent to Company Sgt Major and was was a definate part of ther rank structure and therefore could have been used by any unit.

    Sturmscharfuhrer = top NCO rank (equivalent to Regimental Sergeant Major in British Army). Only Waffen SS used this rank. Other SS formations (e.g. Gestapo) did not. Hope this helps.

    Yes they did. This rank was used within the Sicherheitspolizei, by members of the SD, Gestapo and Kripo. The rank equated to a Kriminalsekretar, although a Kriminalsekretar could also hold the rank of Untersturmfuhrer.
