Ok heres the last few i have, will post more if and when i find them.


In this one the Regiment collects bodies of troops killed by the Partisans.

Interogating a captured Partisan.

Image

Being captured in possesstion of a pistol or any weapon for that matter quite likely sealed this mans fate.

Image

A corporal of a Slovenian partisan battalion captured by SD and Order Police. Capture by the Germans meant certain death it is doubtfull if he survived the War.
Dated 8th Sept 1943 in the Dolenskaya region of Slovenia.


Image


Hope you enjoy the history and pictures of this unusual unit, unusual in that they are not ony Police but SS as well as being Gerbisjager.
We must remember that the Partisan warfare wherever it took place was fought with no quarter given by EITHER side and thus was pretty horrific.

Dave

:D

Ta Justin, yes that last photo is indeed interesting (though not surprising) especially given that both of the SD guys appear to be wearing no rank at all and indeed the age of the one you nentioned seems very young.

Guy on the left appears to be wearing a one piece tankers overall, not surprising since many Police units had captured armour either directly on scale or attached as and when needed.

Yes, the police mountain troops did wear their Edelweiss patch on the lower left sleeve instead of on the upper right one.

Thanks for the info. My Wife's grandfather was with this regiment from 42-45. He was wounded in 1944 by the grenade that killed his brother. At the end of the war, he escaped through Yugoslavia, to Austria and surrendered to the Americans.
