Waffen-SS 'Croatian' Volunteer Sleeve Shield

Description

Waffen-SS 'Croatian' Volunteer Sleeve Shield. As with other foreign volunteer units the Germans devised and produced a national sleeve shield intended for soldiers of the '13.Waffen-Gebirgs-Division der SS "Handschar" (kroatische Nr.1)'. On 30 April 1943, while the division was forming, authorization was given for the introduction of a distinctive national sleeve shield to be worn by all divisional personnel. This is a first pattern shield, the shield originates almost certainly from the SS clothing department at the Dachau KZ when liberated in 1945. The shield is in good unissued condition, it just shows some minor traces caused by years of storage, nice original SS Sleeve Shield!
