Greetings to everyone !!

Just to clear this up for you Remy Schrijnen was a member of the PAK Zug of Kampfgruppe Rehmann later KG D' Haese of the 6 SS Sturm Brigade " Langemarck " which consisted of 3 Kompanies of Infanterie as well as the PAK's. The remainder of Langemarck stayed at the Knovitz training grounds.

He was Richtschutze on the third Geschutz commanded by SS Unterscharfuhrer Jef Grootaers , the Zugfuhrer was SS Untersturmfuhrer Marcel Laperre.

They fought as part of III SS Panzer Korps in the area of the Blue Mountains , the Tannenburg Line , in the combat area of the Nordland Divison.

Schrijnen was a Sturmann at the time of the action and was promoted to Unterschafuhrer at the time of his award notification skipping the rank of Rottenfuhrer.

regards

Paul

So after 43' the (Frw.Legion Flandern) cuff titles are the most common?
