Caucasians in Jäger and Gebirgsjäger formations ?

Post by Sturmschwein » 02 Jun 2020 18:09

I found that Photos in an Russian Forum. I never heard anything before about Caucasian Volunteers in Jäger or Gebirgsjäger formations. Did somebody have more information about units with Caucasian Volunteers ? The first Photo is from an Georgian and the second is from an Armenian in an Jäger formation I believe. I would like to see more Photos if somebody of you have more.

Leon Degrelle wore a Gebirgsjager badge, too.

I recently found some information about georgian Gebirgsjäger formations. But the armenian with the Jäger patch is still a big question to me. Its from a Wochenschau but sadly I dont know from which one. I am still looking for any infos.
