A Rare Uniform Removed Danish Schalburg Corps Cloth Insignia
A Rare Uniform Removed Danish Schalburg Corps Cloth Insignia - White embroidery on black cloth with gray wool backer, 27.5 mm x 85 mm, fine quality, near mint. RARE. Footnote: The corps was set up in 1943 as a Germanic Corps (Germansk Corps), which was later renamed Schalburg Corps, in memory of the Freikorps' most popular commander. Several ex-Freikorps soldiers formed themselves into the cadre of the new corps, which now opened its ranks to "all men of nordic blood" without, theoretically, regard to their politcal affiliation. The corps was divided into two groups: Group I, the uniformed "regular" troops and Group II, its civilian and non-regular supporters, who were expected to give it their moral and financially backing.
