Lightbulb Which SS Sleeveband is the hardest to find on period photos??

I was always curios about this issue......so what do you think?? To me "Horst Wessel" and after "Skanderbeg"....( I avoided to mention the "british free corps")

After more than 200 views and 18 vots we can make a short summary...Charlemagne is surprisingly (at least for me) leading...I cannot really remember to have seen a CT with Horst Wessel or Skanderbeg...in the converse I do remember of a couple of Charlemagne...Is there any member here able to show me at least one of those (even privately)??

-Hermann von Salza
-Florian Geyer
-Michael Gaissmair
-SS-Polizei
-Thule

I like this topic - very clever idea.

About the only cufftitle I can recall seeing with any regularity in photographs is Hitlerjugend. All of the others would be a special occassion for me.

true, but I saw at least one of them all ( hmm maybe Thule not..). They are of course very scarce as well. But sadly I saw none of the 2 mentioned above. But keep coming sharing your experiences.

HJ is also not easy to find, but nothing compared to the others inclusive Fallschirmjäger that I rarely saw..maybe 2 times ever.

Leibstandarte and Das Reich are quite common, but I agree with the less prestigous divisions/regiments.

Regards,
Chris.

Default Cuff Titles in wear

Greetings,
Just thought I'd add My 2 cents worth. Any one seen a photo of the SS Totenkopfverbande Cuff Title in Sutterlien Script lately? Please excuse My spelling. Sincerely, DJB

Default SS Sleeveband

Hello Edgar,
Here is an interesting one from the Totenkopfverbande. Most of these guys would be wearing Skull Collar tabs instead of the runic tab this guy is wearing. Sincerely, DJB
