    With post 8 I showed you two pages from my book. I had a look for the photographs
    and two I found quickly. As I thought various of you may like details, I have scanned
    them and include the photos here, with some of its details. Better is not possible, but
    I hope you all like it!

    I think buckle-collectors will run at the mouth, isn't?

    Well about the buckle it often is said to be fantasy. It is obvious this isn't?

    The drawings are from the books "Vlaanderen in uniform" from Jan Vincx.
    See what he says about the open and closed wreath. Verschueren and
    Slaets do both wear the cuffband SS-Vlaanderen.

    No, I show it here. If buckle collectors would like to see it, they can have a look at this thread.
    I made a new scan from the buckle while I am convinced the worn buckle is not pebbled at all.
    One would have seen anyway somehwere at the buckle the "Körnung". These buckles are
    heavily faked, but for what reason the fakers included a wrong RZM code, do not ask me??

    No and the taken photograph is not a post war photograph. My friend Jan Vincx did have this
    photograph already anyway for years when I visited him in 1978/1979. Jan had many contacts
    in the right-winged scene and many contacts with former right-winged persons, who served
    during WWII. I got a copy from the photograph in about 1980.

    Woolgar: I made a note for those interested in the buckle section!!

    Couple of them were executed and those who didn't lost their Civilianrights. Even untill today there are some of them that still don't have them back.
