There were around 9000-10.000 Dutchmen who drove for the NSKK (Alex Dekker who is also a forum member (lexiebabe) had researched this, he also wrote a book about it: "Ook gij behoort bij ons"). 25 of them earned the Iron Cross.
Some hunderds of Dutch NSKK men from the NSKK Transportgruppe Luftwaffe / 2.Brig / 2.Bat. / 6.Regiment fought in Stalingrad. Only 50 came out of the Kessel and were decorated by Mussert (Dutch nazi leader) when they were back in Holland.
Also check this site which has some Dutch NSKK medals: http://axis101.bizland.com/DutchAwards5.htm

There were also around 10.000 other men who did various jobs which also includes the OT (I don't know the exact numbers for the OT).

The Dutchmen who wre deployed at Stalingrad were not active during the encirclement IN Stalingrad, but mosltly at 100 - 300 km westwards, around Milorovo. The men who came out of that Kessel were indeed invited by Mussert, but only if they were NSB-partmembers...

Estonians were also recruited as NSKK-members, but I have not got any numbers yet.
