SS insignia from the Ostmark

Article about: by d'alquen I believe the men in post #38 are at the SS camp for Austrian refugees at Waischenfeld . The H.W.L. Schleissheim buldings in the Uebungslager Dachau are quite different. I agree

    I agree with silvercreek in that all the early shots of Austrian SS men I have seen show a blank collar patch.

    Thank you. The Wiener SS book gives an extensive account of these Austrian SS men in the Altreich. The chapter makes for very compelling reading.
    The town-garrison problems were pretty severe.

    Looking through a few documents relating to the Austrian contingent I found that according to the 1937 Allgemeine-SS insignia regulations, men and leaders of the H.W.L. Schliessheim wore a blank collar tab. This would fit would the organisation being under the auspices of the SS main Office. It appears that the cuff title was introduced at the end of 1935.

    This is the only photograph I have been able to find of the H.W.L Schliessheim title in wear. Interestingly by the time of this picture, October 1936, the Arabic 'SS' appears to have been replaced by the runic version. The occasion was a party march past for Gauleiter Wagner in Munich.

Size:  26.7 KBThank you, Robert. The extract from the Allgemeine SS book is useful. These Austrian SS men were more like Hartz IV recipients than iron eating warriors, plainly, and many of them had a pretty dodgy social background at that, and would, by today's standards, be regarded as violent criminals and likely terrorists.
    damit, basta.

    Ive been reviewing the book "Wie die Ostmark" and thought I would share some of the interesting photos. I hope you will enjoy them.
