Musikzug (des I. Sturmbanns) der SS-Standarte "Germania"

Post by Ivan Ž. » 06 Sep 2014 16:11

[Split from Unidentified SS bands]

Any idea to which SS unit this orchestra belonged? (Which SS units were present in the Hague on 17 May 1942?)

They can be seen at the beginning of the footage and then again at 2:00.
The bandleader is a highly decorated officer (seems to be an SS-Hstuf.) and they all wear cuff titles, and SS runes on their collars.

Thank you very much for the reply, Uwe, but the (barely visible) cuff title inscription seems to be shorter than "SS-Polizei-Division". Any other units that might have been present there at the time? If anyone has a picture from the event, displaying a (visible) cuff title inscription of the guard/band unit, it would be great. I've seen several photos so far, but there was nothing readable in them...

Cheers,
Ivan

It's the band of the SS Regiment "Germania" (formerly band of the regiment's I battalion).

Two announcements, a photo and a detailed report on the grand WHW concert held by the band of the SS Regiment "Germania", led by SS-Hstuf. Edgar Siedentopf, on 16 October 1940 in the Tivoli Concert Hall, Apeldoorn, Netherlands.
