Looking for pictures of V./LSSAH Feb-June 1942

Post by Ebusitanus » 27 Sep 2017 18:44

Hello,
As the title says, I am looking for any picture of this Wachbattalion (V./LSSAH) participation in HGr Nord between February to June 1942.
SS-Hstuf. Hugo Kraas was the commander of this detached unit as it was sent due to the emergency arrising from the 2nd Shock Army breaking through the Volkhov to the Leningrad siege line as to free up parts of the 58. Infanterie-Division to move to the front.
The V./LSSAH was initially attached to the Kampfgruppe Jeckeln till April and deployed at Urzik on the western siege lines around Leningrad and running up to the Finish gulf. Later it was sent near Mga and attached to the 223. Infanterie-Division till june when it was ultimately sent to the SS-Leibstandarte gathering a Ssambek in the Ukraine.

I have been looking far and near for ANY picture of this unit while being with HGr Nord with zero luck so far.

Any help or pointers would be GREATLY appreciated

Daniel

Anyone might have seen a picture of this period?
