The following is a tidbit from the Waffen-SS Encyclopedia, by Marc Rikmenspoel, page 192:

"A small number of Spaniards were in the Bandenburger units that became SS-Jagdverbände Südwest from the autumn of 1944. With them, there may have been 300 Spaniards in the Waffen-SS. The 'Spanish' volunteers in German services always included individual Portugese (sic) who were counted as Spaniards."
"Good actions ennoble us, and we are the sons of our deeds."—Miguel de Cervantes

Several threads dealing with Portuguese serving with the Wehrmacht/Waffen-SS have been merged into this one for easier reference.
