    As far as foreign volunteers shields are concerned, collecting only BeVo ones (at least for beginning) would be preferable than printed ones. IMO.

    The cloth and the shape of shield- inscriptions on them and also the color is hard to reproduce exact examples.

    I imagine the Flemish & the Norge will be tricky to find. Stewy S

    I agree Mate...The embroidered Flemish, Norge and Danish are tough and can be expensive. The Latvia and Croatia IMO are more readily available.

    Here's a pretty good link.

    Great pic Ned...Love the Model 42 tunics and they have rolled their wool socks over their boots in place of gaiters...Typical W-SS look...
