ϟϟ-Kriegsberichter-Kompanie

Italian SS-Kriegsberichter
An unidentified Italian Waffen-Untersturmführer der SS and Kriegsberichter wearing the cap-badge for the Italian Waffen-SS, a Lorioli Skull with eagle clutching the Republican Fasces. In 1943 15,000 Italian volunteers started training at Truppenübungsplatz Münsingen, but 6,000 of them were unsuitable and released for training in other units. After World War II, as with other former members of Waffen-SS formations, veterans of the Legione SS Italiana (29.Waffen-Grenadier Division der SS) found employ in the CIA-orchestrated organizations of political warfare in an “anti-communist” role.
