While doing a research about portuguese volunteers on the eastern front, i've come upon an SS-Sturmmann with an odd name, Erich Alves. Alves was serving in the 2./Pz.Jäg.Abt. of the "Das Reich" during the battle of kharkov (Feb.- Mar. 43) where he scored a few russian tanks with a marder.
Alves is a portuguese name, and while this man is not portuguese (for all the obvious reasons), his name surely is, so, i consider the possibility of him having a portuguese ancestry.
Does anyone have any info about him or knows where i can find it?
Also, any info about portuguese serving in any branch of the wehrmacht will be welcome.
