Algemeine SS

There was a "Nederlandse SS", an offshoot/copycat sprouting from the Mussert Garde.
This name was later changed to "Germanische SS".
There may have been units from the Algemeine stationed somewhere, but I don't know where.
Timo to the rescue.

G.B. I am sure none of the other guy's and myself feel particular brave. Lucky is a better term for it. We left the brave ones behind and it bothers me when I hear and read what is written about them and is happening to some of their memorials. Facing them or whatever they threw at us did not make ...

Helmut, Actually that joke was not too far fetched. Sweden had a brisk commerce going with Germany, From ballbearings (made in the USA), to Zimmer Bofors anti Aircraft guns, to what have you. Since the uniforms did indeed look alike to an extent, that "joke' could even have been true. Hail and salut...

Re: thanks

When the "Fuhrer" got in charge of Germany, many social reforms were instigated, One of them was to create jobs, and rebuild the economy.

I got two hours "off" to celebrate, and once the ladies knew that "the kid" with the brand new War merit Cross with swords, and the Wounded medal, was there, they would come by, once in a while, some would tweak my cheeks , and bring me some more goodies.
