A couple of press reports on the legion's Telefunken recordings (and unit marches) and a Telefunken advertisement.

From an unknown newspaper, June 1939

From Badische Presse, 21.06.1939, p. 3

From a Telefunken catalog, Sep. 1939, p. 8

Note: the pictured occasion was (mis)identified in the source as the 22 May 1939 (farewell) parade in León; as can be seen in the confirmed photos from the parade, that day was sunny and the streets were dry, while in this photo, the day is grey and the streets are wet and muddy.
