ϟϟ-Unterscharführer der Waffen-SS Johansson

SS-Unterscharführer Arne Johansson
SS-Unterscharführer Arne Johansson from Göteborg, Sweden, served in the Swedish Volunteer Corps during the Soviet aggression against Finland in 1939 – 1940 before joining the Waffen-SS with 11.SS-Freiwilligen-Panzergrenadier-Division Nordland. In 1943 Johansson was assigned to the "Schwedenkompanie" in AA11 (Panzergruppe Saalbach). On several occasions the company commander had to calm down his fighting spirit, which came to fore when things started to get hot, but finally it cost him his life. Arne Johansson was killed in action during a counter-attack in Groß Wachlin east of Stettin-Altdamm on March 1 1945, leaving behind a wife and three children in Scandinavia.
