COLMAR POCKET CAMO BATTLE DAMAGED HEER HELMET Q64 single decal M40 combat helmet, the hand-painted camouflage paint is mostly a shade of brown and the helmet has suffered a catastrophic impact to the skull, also a minor 'ding' to the skirt. Of greatest interest is the label stuck to the inside skirt fabricated from the border of a postage stamp sheet, which reads from what can still be made out ' found in deutsche panzer tank Kunheim Winter*****' Kunheim is in Frances Alcase regieon next to the Rhine, and here, during late '44 - '45 was the scene of heavy fighting in the battle of the Colmar pocket. The liner is complete and totally original to the helmet, all leather tongues are present and remain supple, chin strap minus. Seldom do you find a battle worn helmet that you know where and which battle it was lost! Superb piece of WWII history.

EWIGES ARZTTUM HIPPOKRATES An extremely RARE publication, ex libris Dr.Carl Schneider, who was heavily involved with the Nazi euthanasia programme. The publication is fro Himmler and it seems to be a reminder to the SS doctors of there Hippocratic oath!! Published in 1942, it was encouragement to keep the Doctors of the Reich in tune with the SS programme. Professor Dr. Carl Schneider (1891-1946), Professor and Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Heidelberg, used the Nazis' euthanasia program for his own depraved research. Schneider conducted psychological assessments of children he knew were doomed to die, and had their brains collected and dissected after they were murdered.8 Schneider committed suicide after the war.

GERMANISCHE LEISTUNGSRUNE (GERMAN PROFICIENCY RUNES) BADGE CITATION!! AND RELATED DOCS The award is very rare....... the citation is like Hens teeth to find!!!only one of three known!!! With so much supporting photos and other documentation!! Named Wilhelm Wolfrum. In all the group consists of around 60 documents and photos Signatures from Karl Maria Demelhuber,Felix Steiner Hans-Albin von Reitzenstein (Wiking/Das Reich -Knights Cross) wrote a personal letter to Wolfrum. On page three of the March 15. 1944 issue of the Deutche Uniformen-Zeitschrift“ ( line drawing in the photo section) a small article reads: “The Germanic Proficiency Runes badge was awarded for the first time by Reichsführer SS Heinrich Himmler during his visit to the Netherlands. This honor is awarded in Bronze and Silver” The above translated caption is in reference to Heinrich Himmler’s visit to the SS School Avegoor, near Arnhem in the Netherlands on February 1st 1944. Himmler personally presented 95 Germaansche Leistungsrune, the Dutch name of he award, to Dutch and German SS men. Also in 1944 further recorded test and award events took place in Denmark on June 2nd and in Norway at the Norwegian SS School on August 16th 1994. I am unaware of further recordings of ceremonies to award the badge may also have been awarded on other occasions less grand than the events above. From details contained within the Wilhelm Wolfrum Germanische SS Profüngsbuch we can ascertain at least one further testing and awarding of this badge did indeed take place between the 26th and 29th of October 1944. On the fourth day of the test event Wilhelm Wolfrum, a German, was awarded the Germanische Leistungsrune in Silver, at the SS-Reichsschule near Prague, Czechoslovakia in October. Qualifying for this badge must have been quite an achievement for Wolfrum as he was severely injured in battle on July 24th 1941. The injuries were so severe that Wolfrum was unable to recover and return to full duty status until January 1943. A Brief Biography of Germanische Leistungsrune Holder Wilhelm Wolfrum Wilhelm Wolfrum was born on September 2nd 1913 in Frankfurt am Main. After 8 years of preliminary schooling he trained and worked as a tool and die maker. As a young man of 22 years he joined the SS-Verfuerungstruppe (SS-VT) 2nd Battalion of “Germania” in August 1935. He trained as Waffenmeister (Armorer) and saw combat in the Polish and Western campaigns assigned to the 2nd Battalion Staff, with Battalion Commander Werner Dörfler Schuband, Regimental commander Carl-Maria Demelhuber (Demelhuber signature on Wolfrum's SS Driving Licence) and Divisional Commander Paul Hausser. He was involved in the heaviest Waffen-SS engagements in the Arras region of France in 1940. In February 1941 Wolfrum transferred to Waffen SS Division “Wiking” and was duly assigned to a Wiking Reconnaisance Detachment as it’s Waffenmeister (Armourer). The Detachment commander was Hans-Albin von Reitzenstein, later a Knight’s Cross holder as a Panzer Regiment Commander of “Das Reich”. The Divisional Commander was Felix Steiner. Within 2 months of joining Wiking, Wolfrum was promoted to SS-Hauptscharführer (FA) [Officer Candidate] on April 1st 1941 with an effective seniority date of 20th April. In July he was awarded the Iron Cross 2nd Class and received an excellent evaluation by detachment Commander von Reitzenstein. In April 1941 Wiking completed it’s training in Truppen-Ubungsplatz Heuberg, Germany, in time for the fist attack on the Soviet Union, operation Barberossa. On July 24th 1941 Wolfrum was severely wounded in his stomach and groin by mortar fire during combat in the Dnjeprpetrowsk area along the Djnieper River. Until August 1942 Wolfrum underwent multiple surgeries in the Munich-Dachau SS Hospital and did not recover to full duty fitness until January 1943. For these battle injuries Wolfrum was awarded the Wound Badge in Silver. Von Reitzenstein also recommended Wolfrum for promotion to Officer rank on 30th August 1941. He was commissioned as an SS-Untersturmführer d.R on November 9th 1941(the Reserve, to hold rank until the conclusion of the war) On February 7th 1945 he was transferred to the SS-Tank Training and Replacement Regiment within SS-Troop Training area “Beneschau” near Prague. In the last months of the war Wolfrum once again found himself in battle when his training unit was absorbed as a component of SS Battle Group “Trabandt”, commanded by Knight’s Cross holder August-Wilhelm Tabandt. Full list of Wilhem Wolfrum’s awards: SA Sports Badge in Bronze, Reich Sports Badge in Gold, Sudentanland 1938 Annexation Medal, Iron Cross 2nd Class, War Merit Cross 2nd Class with Swords, Wound Badge in Silver, General Assault Badge in Silver, Infantry Assault Badge (Motorized) and the Germanische Leistungsrune in Silver. After recovery to duty status Wolfrum was assigned to the “Waffentechniscen Lehranstalt der SS”, the SS Weapons Technical Training facility at Munich-Dachau on January 10th 1943 as an Assistant Instructor. He became a full-duty Specialist Instructor as well as serving as the Weapons Technical Officer for the School. During this period he also attended advanced classes at the Army School for Armorers. After 1st April 1944 he headed the entire 4th teaching detachment at the training facility. For his service as an Instructor he was awarded the War Merit Cross 2nd Class and rated by senior school officials as “competent at all posts despite his physical disabilities” from his combat injuries. Wolfrum was further promoted to SS-Oberstumführer d.R on January 30th 1943 and then to SS-Hauptsturmführer d.R. on November 9 1944. An interesting point about this particular book is that Wolfrum, walked with a limp, was not required to take Test 12, the 30 Kilometre march. The picture to the left shows a section of page 19 where test 12 is marked “bestanden” which means “existing”. Wolfrum had previously proven himself in his military service in combat, presumably sufficient “qualification” to be excused the test. Wilhelm Wolfrum survived the War and was taken into an Allied Interment Camp for Waffen-SS members. He was released but soon after died in the town of his birth, on the 31st May 1947 around 2: 45 AM, Frankfurt/Main, leaving a wife, no children.

KRIMINAL.- KOM. SS- STURMBANNFUHRER PAUL WINZER WHITE SUMMER TUNIC FOR VIEWING PLEASURE ONLY NOT CURRENTLY FOR SALE
L A H MONOGRAMMED MILK JUG ! Maybe Sepp himself used this piece! A 1930's silver milk jug made by the firm of Berndorf (standing bear logo to base) a popular producer of such silver ware during the Third Reich, the early flowing entwined LAH monogram is expertly and beautifully engraved the jug, and is exactly the same as the cyper used on early shoulder boards, the attention to detail is amazing! There is much patina and the jug has obviously not been cleaned for many years, it must have been a part of a set of formal LAH table set! The first time to the market the jug came from a private source in Germany recently.

MAJOR EARLY LSSAH PHOTO, INSIGNIA AND DOCUMENT GROUPING Fascinating record of an early LAH mann, Albert Haugmuller joined the SS in 1931 and spent time with 11.SS-Standarte, Vienna, later given honour title 'Planetta', in '33 he was at SS-Sonderkommando Zossen training for SS-Sonderkomando Berlin, under the guidance of Sturbannfuhrer Otto 'Papa' Reich, his service with the LAH included attendance at the National congress at Leipzig July '33 and of course at Nurnberg, Hagmuller also took a personal part in the ROHM PUTSCH. The photo album is adorned with Hagmullers extremely rare insignia, comprising of his final SS rank (Hauptscharfuhrer) tab and his early runic tab both white piped along with his beautiful LAH hand embroidered (full length) cuff title, the album contains 155 photos 16 of which are large size, virtually all photos are uniformed shots no dogs and landscapes! It begins with the title, my service in pictures from Drill to Portepee! Interestingly the first photo is of him in make up for a play, wearing a black Kratzchen. Interestingly on some early pages, Hagmuller has used the protective tissue type sheets between the photo pages as a means to identify the individuals in the photos with a numbering system, very helpful! The album starts with early training including Zossen, also early uniform shots showing himself in brown shirt and '11' tab, Gobbels and Dietrich seem to be among his favorites and appear several times, photos of the Leipzig and Nurnberg congress, Hitler, Himmler and the usual suspects, photos of the LAH Deutschland Erwache and the Schellenbaum, nice ceremonial marching and congress photos, beer in Luitpoldhain! Great photos including black coats, tunics, super early helmet shots large and detailed! Hess and Hitler together, Tempelhof preparation for the Putsch! Driving out to the Putsch! Hitler and Bruckner with Heer Generals, 'Papa' Reich, Templehof celebration May '34, Polizei parade, Goring, Great shot of men in drill all wearing Kratzschen with insignia, Some great close up insignia photos and superb shots of Hagmullers Honour dagger on the wall of his room! More Gobbels photos, Banda faschista, album finishes with large photos of congress including Hitler, Rohm, Darre, Dietrich, Wolf, Schaub, Bruckner and,and.... Final photo is of his Portepee. Along with the album is Hagmullers NSDAP membership book, civilian photo, membership number 687383, entries show his LAH service , SS awards, stamps include Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler and SS-Sonderkommando Berlin! And of great interest the Honour dagger award! Along with the album and Party book is lever arch file containing well over 100 documents maybe 200 or more, including a letter from Hagmuller dated 1991 describing some of his SS experiences especially praising ‘Papa Reich’ The main reason being is that it was Reich who saved him from SACHSENHAUSEN KZ! The remainder of the file comprises largely of correspondence between Hagmuller and the NSDAP/ SS authorities several between Hagmuller and SS Gruppenfuhrer Alfred Rodenbucher including the latter’s original signatures, regarding his innocence and being wrongly imprisoned. Also stapled to a card is Hagmullers original Sachsenhuasen KZ number worn on his KZ uniform. It seems that Hagmuller was involved with the assistance organization formed by Rodenbucher for SS refugees following the Putsch attempt in Austria. Hagmuller had noticed that certain monies from the Refugee fund were often short when handled by a particular officer, Hagmuller decided on a course of action against the officer involved, who in turn it would seem outwitted the hapless Hagmuller and had him sent to Sachsenhausen kz! On what charge I am not sure of, research of the file I am sure would reveal the facts. Several months later as luck would have it ‘Papa Reich’ his former commanding officer In the LAH now had jurisdiction over Sachsenhausen kz, he actually saw Hagmuller in the kz and asked what the goodness was he doing there, knowing he would not have been Guilty of the crime alleged, had him immediately released. Hagmuller eventually was pardoned and invited back to the SS, but declined and went to war with the Army as Panzer grd. Final rank Hauptmann d.r (copies of his soldbuch and award citations can be obtained) Finally included in the back of the album are some post war documents relating to his former chums especially Emil Moser, also some loose photos including Moser , Albert Stenwedel and Dietrich. Photos are very clear in hand and magnify to show great detail, Images herewith are deliberately poor. FURTHER RESEARCH IS A MUST!

The helmet otherwise is in top condition 90% original factory green paint remaining, leather liner is in excellent lightly used condition and Hiller has written his name SS Hauptscharfuhrer Hiller, leather chin strap is supple and equally unused, maker marked and dated 1938. What follows are the names of some of the perpetrators, all German officers and N.C.O's who participated in the crimes against Jews and Gypsies in the Chelmno area. The first commandant of Chelmno (Kulmhof) was SS Sturmbannführer - SS-Major Herbert Lange. He was followed in March of 1942 by SS-Hauptsturmführer - SS-Captain Hans Bothmann. Successively, Bothmann had two assistants, Otto Platte and Willi Hiller. SS-Untersturmführer - SS-2nd Lieutenant Walter Filer, deputy to Bothmann SS-Untersturmführer - SS-2nd Lieutenant Alois Häfele, the 'specialist' in charge of all activities. SS-Hauptscharführer - SS-Master Sergeant Albert Richter, division commander SS-Hauptscharführer - SS-Master Sergeant Wilhelm Lenz, Chief woods commando SS-Hauptscharführer - SS-Master Sergeant Johann Runge, Chief in charge of the crematoria SS-Unterscharführer - SS-Sergeant Erich Kretschmer, deputy to Runge at the crematoria SS-Hauptscharführer - SS-Master Sergeant Erwin Burstinger, in charge of the fuel and all the gas vans SS-Hauptscharführer - SS-Master Sergeant Gustav Laabs, driver of the gas vans SS-Hauptscharführer - SS-Master Sergeant Herman Gilow, driver of the gas vans SS-Unterscharführer - SS-Sergeant Walter Burmeister, in charge of the gold SS-Rottenführer - SS-Corporal Wilhelm Gürlich, deputy to Burmeister, expert in gold SS-Hauptscharführer - SS-Master Sergeant Schmidt, in charge of the dinning room In January 1945, when Soviet troops were approaching, SSers started the execution of the remaining Jewish workers, some of whom attacked the Germans, killing two of them. The SS burned the building in which the Jewish workers were locked. There are only two known Jewish survivors of this camp, Mordechai Podchlebnik and Simon Srebnik. During 1962/63, twelve members of the SS who had served as guards in Chelmno stood trial in Bonn, Germany. For their war crimes they were sentenced to prison terms ranging form 1 to 20 years. Considering the enormity of the crimes they were accused of having committed these sentences are extremely light and certainly out of tune with reality.

SS OFFICER/NCO CANDIDATE VISOR CAP ! Fresh to the market this completely untouched, sleepy and intriguing visor cap, at first appearances the cap appears to be an NCO/EM cap with black wool band and leather chin strap, on closer inspection the black wool band has been laid over the factory black velvet officer band! The candidate was astute and confident enough to buy one cap to cover both ranks. Cap condition is excellent retaining its original period applied metal insignia, cupal eagle and Zinc Overhoff TK both retain the majority of the factory original finish, cap shows light to moderate wear, a couple of moth nips to the cap top and a couple under the overhang, the heavy wool below the lower cap piping has been rather more attractive to the moths with several larger nips, the Sonderklasse gold liner retains its complete celluloid rhomboid panel. A super visor cap that really talks!

The photo below is a small section of the original photo which also shows the eagle is actually applied to an LAH StuG tunic, the copy photo I supply will be full size

WSS OFFICER FIELD MADE M43 , SUPERB!
WSS OFFICER FIELD MADE M43 , SUPERB! From one of the oldest and most respected collections in the USA I have been trying to buy this cap for years, finally this year I got lucky. Completely field made of a waterproof Khaki material from what I do not know, there is an odd eyelet/vent machine sewn under the front flap which has no current use and must of been in the materiel before being tailored as a cap! Two wooden buttons are sewn to the front of the closure flaps with no button holes and are decorative only, the cap is lined in an artificial silk HBT, and is exactly as found in SSBW tunics as lining material, the liner shows moderate even use and soiling, officer collar piping has been hand applied to pipe the cap crown, all insignia is hand applied and comprises of a machine embroidered Edelweiss to the side flap,a standard em SS BeVo eagle to the cap front with a beautiful officer TK beneath, size I would guess at circa 56.

In addition to this he has had the flaps sewn down with large stitches in black cotton, to the cap top crease he has stapled and paper clipped together !!
