    The first image is of a Croation Officer who is an official member of the SS and is an ethnic German, you can tell by the SS patch next to his wound badge, IMO. SS Div. Handshar

    Nice pics, Dean! Could this patch possibly be from a different branch other than the SS? Maybe army? I never seen this type before on an SS tunic.

    Im not completely sure, but I thought these were only SS volunteer patches. I have an SS aserbaidschan volunteer sleeve patch.

    It's the Wehrmacht version of the Croation volunteer shield as worn by Inf Div 369, or Croats in the Luftwaffe etc.

    I'm new to SS insignia & to my knowledge, there were two types of the SS Croatia shields and this wasn't one of them, thanks for clarifying things up.
