15 SS Lett. Nr. 1
23 SS Nederland

With 15 SS Lett. Nr. 1, are you only intressted in the divisional collartab type, or also the localy made latvian SS runes?

In this case I'm interested in the divisional collar tab showing the sun and stars.

Next to the normal SS runes, the wolfsangel and empty collar tabs, the Landstorm Nederland used these:

When the Landstorm was incorporated into the Waffen SS, in 1944, the collartabs changed to siegrunen.
Been there, done that.

Hello!
Regarding "Nordland", at least for Rgt Norge, this wellknown picture of Balstad could do.
However, the division itself used several collar tabs. Rgt 24 Danmark had different ones.

If I'm correct the collartabs with the flaming grenade's came from the Landwacht Nederland (the forerunner of the Landstorm Nederland).
