Here are two photos from "Signal" magazine's special edition (1943) about eastern volunteers.

First one show Sigerbai Kuscherbaj, volunteer from Turkistan.

Second photo is well-known i think: Gen.Lt. Hellmich visits Legion Turkistan.

The interesting note on the first pattern patch is that the writing was done in Arabic - while MAJORITY of Turkistan volunteers spoke Turkik. That was the reason for the second patch. T

P.S. There are more photos in Littlejohns book.

Munoz says that the man is from the Ostmuselmanische SS - Regiment. Another photo in the series where the Turkistani arm patch is visable, he states that the men are volunteers with the Ostturkischen Waffen Verband der-SS.
