    I've never seen this before, more then likely a 4th Reich band made in someones basement.

    I believe Skorzeny's 502nd SS Jäger Battalion was reorganised as SS-Jagdverbande. They wore an armband but I havent seen a pic of one in wear

    Is it possible then that this could be an authentic armband? I'm guessing it's pure speculation at this point based on a lack of reference material on it.

    A large part of the Romanian volunteers was used to create commando units. The first of these units, composed of approximately 70 men, was in barracks at Korneuburg, to the north of Vienna. It components were trained as paratroops, to undertake guerrilla actions on enemy territory. This group was commanded by Lt Müller, supported by Virgil Popa. Another Romanian sub-unit was instructed by the The Service of Information of the German Army (Abwehr) in a camp near Vienna. In the last months of the war a part of the personnel of this sub-unit led by Lt Pfeiffer were parachuted into the zone of Soviet lines, where they carried out acts of sabotage.
    Google.......
    The third and perhaps the greatest Romanian SS commando group was organised alongside the specially-named Südost SS Jagdverbaende, commanded by SS Standartenführer Otto Skorzeny, and it was relocated to the Stockerau Hollabrun near Vienna. Otto Skorzeny earnt his celebrity owing to commando actions, amongst which the liberations of Mussolini and Horthy. The head of this unit was Major Benesch, and the head of the Romanian detachment, Major Toba. The advance of the front meant that trained personnel of the elite Romanian sub-unit should be used in small scale actions within the last weeks of the war.

    ETF maybe another photo of the stitching inside will help the cloth experts and what is common to see with other armbands. Just a thought. Regards Larry

    Thanks Larry...I appreciate your feedback. I took these photos off an auction site which is coming up in about 30 minutes. They are the only photos I have. Depending on what the bids are I may or may not bid on the armband. If it's DIRT cheap I will ...if not I'll pass on it.

    Regards,
