SELLIN should not be considered to be an SS officer from what you say. This is a common situation. Several months back a German vet had claimed to be to be an Obersturmführer and company commander in the Rgt. "Norge" in 1945. There was no officer file or other record to be found that would confirm that this man was actually an officer. My Norwegian researcher friend inquired at the German Red Cross who produced a signed post-war document from the man that he had been a member of Rgt. "Norge", but his high rank was Oberscharführer!
Paul: I think we attended to the same veteranmeeting a few weeks ago at Sinimäe/Estonia? I there also met Sellin who told me briefly told me that he had served with SS-Aufkl.Abt.5 Wiking in which he was heavily wounded in late 41(?), hospitalized and then sent to SS-Junkerschule PRAGUE in 45 and finally in action in a Kampfgruppe. (Jörchels Kampfgruppe?)
