3.ϟϟ-Panzerdivision „Totenkopf“

3.SS-Panzerdivision Totenkopf
Unidentified SS-Untersturmführer
Images: an unidentified SS-Untersturmführer of 3.SS-Panzer-Division Totenkopf in conversations with an Offizier of the Heer somewhere in Romania in April 1944. One source identifies the Oberleutnant who is wearing a Sturmartillerie jacket as a member of the 228.Sturmgeschütz Brigade. This brigade served alongside Totenkopf in Bessarabia in the spring of 1944. The Wehrmacht soldiers regarded the Waffen-SS men as thoroughly reliable comrades. Respect born of shared frontline experiences. The unknown SS-Untersturmführer wears an early vertical Totenkopf collar tab. A version that was only used by the SS-TV before the war.
