Foreign Flak helpers included both boys and girls in their service. Hundreds of your girls from all over Eastern Europe were drafted into this service. Also in R. Landwehr's book I read about Ukrainian nurses in 12 SS Hitler Jugend division.

H. Meyer mentions the Ukranian nurse aids of SS Feldlazarett 501 and their care of SS men in his book "The History of the 12 SS Panzerdivision Hitlerjugend.

There was many Norwegian nurses in the DRK. Moxnes as is mentioned did get the EK2, she was from Trondheim. I have a picture of her. Will try to post i later. Another nurse from Norway was Hanna Kvannmo. She later bacame the leader of a political party (Sosialistisk Venstreparti) here in Norway, and was elected to "stortinget". It was a big fuss here when it came out that she as an elected politician, where working for the Germans during the war. She died some years ago, but there`s a biografy about her life. There she also tells everything about her years in the DRK.

Here`s a great pic of Moxnes and two other nurses.
The picture is from the book "Europäische freiwillige im bild" (Nation Europa Verlag).
Moxnes saved wounded German soldiers out of a burning hospital, thats why she got the EK2

I really don`t know much about her. Only that she was from Trondheim, and got the EK2. Can try and find out more about her, but it`s difficult. Have done some search, came out with nothing.
