Are the troops in the photo SS? One of them seems to have an SS collar patch, but the collar patches of the others look more like Wehrmacht.

It is possible that WH supported the SS in the crimes committed in the area. In Poland it was very common, starting from 1939 WH was absolutely spotless.

Hello Michael and Ponury,

The "Wehrmacht" soldier are actually Trawniki attached to the Aktion Reinhard and later to Abteilung R wearing the peculiar uniform.
As said by Stefano earlier you would eventually find all the answers to your questions about the uniforms (with around 30 pages dedicated to the uniform topic containing also close ups of the ones worn by Trawniki) and about the armoured trucks of the former Abt. R in our book "Globocnik's Men".

Very best regards
Looking for the Soldbuch of Hptw.d.SchP. Kurt Etowski.

We've just realized that maybe Michael Mills was referring to the soldiers wearing the Ordnungspolizei collar litzen; those are not Wehrmacht too but they are the peculiar - probably non textbook and locally produced - Ordnungspolizei uniforms supplied to most of the Abteilung R men at the arrival in Italy.

Does anyone know if there are any post war photos of Willi Mentz? The only ones that I have seen are blurred or from a distance. I knowthis question has been asked before, but am hoping a decent photo may have surfaced since then. Any help would be appreciated

There should be mug shots available for all the trial defendants avaliable somewhere (early 60’s)
