In last posting #60 you can see members of he „Schwarze Brigade Sachsen”. It were Wehrwolf members from Sachsen, who left the Wehrwolf organization in March 1933 and founded a new group, that was loyal to the NSDAP.

Today I got a very interesting newspaper about the history of the NSDAP Ortsgruppe in Limbach (in Sachsen) from June 1933. The most interesting part is the part about the Wehrwolf Ortsgruppe Limbach. It was one of the first Wehrwolf Ortsgruppen in Sachsen. Later in 1933 it was one of the Ortsgruppen , that left the organization. The Wehrwoelfe were members in the “Schwarze Brigade Sachsen”. One month later after this newspaper were published, the Brigade was forbidden on 15th July 1933.

What is the best detail?

It has an original signature from the book author and Bundesführer of the Wehrwolf Fritz Kloppe!!!!!!

PS: The book was given as a present to a comrade of Kloppe.

I never collected WW. But, this is a really interesting and very rare collection of material. Thanks for your ongoing posting of your latest acquisitions. It's becoming an online Wehrwolf museum!

Most collectors don't know, that the Wehrwolf was one of the three biggest, national Wehrverbände in the Weimarer Republik. Der Stahlhelm, Jungdeutscher Orden and Wehrwolf.

I think it still exist many Wehrwolf pieces in collections of Freikorps collectors, who have never heard anything about the Wehrwolf. They are always thinking the same. Skull = Freikorps!

These both pieces came together from the same person, who lived in Limbach in Sachsen until 1945. The owner was member in the Wehrwolf Ortsgruppe Limbach and served later in the SS. I have already mentioned the Ortsgruppe Limbach in posting #61. Later part of the so called "Schwarze Brigade"!!!!

Thanks for sharing Stefan, very nice rare and historically significant stuff. Can you tell me are there any physical differences between the totenkopf worn by "wherwolf" members and the Danziger style? Or are they the same.

Please look in posting #4 in this thread! There you can see that Wehrwolf members used all kinds of skulls. Especially in the early years. That means they used the "Danziger style" skull, too.

PS: They also used black caps like SS members. And at the end of the Wehrwolf in 1933 most members were SS and SA members.

Yes, the badge in #16 is really nice. I'm still looking for such a payable badge. Such commemorative badges were given to Wehrwolf members in 1933. Here is another one, but not from my collection.....
