I have a photo of one in one of my books. The photo came from Mark Bando, the American researcher of American Airborne units. In the course of his research into the 101st Airborne Division, he met with Wilson Boback, who had fought in the Netherlands during Market-Garden in September 1944. Boback's unit came into contact with part of the Landstorm Nederland, and Boback killed a man from the LN and then searched his body. He took from it a photo of the man, who was obviously Indonesian (or part), which showed him in the uniform of the Legion Nederland (wolf's hook collar patch, Dutch made armshield and cufftitle), along with the flaming grenade helmet decal of the LN.

This shows there was at least one Indonesian in the Waffen-SS, and it is likely at least a few similar cases existed.

Please use also words like "Please" or "Thank you" when you expect information. "Show this photo" is not really motivating to spend time to answer your request.

Sorry, but as I explained above, the photo isn't really mine. I had permission to put it in my book, but I don't have permission to let it get spread all over the internet. If it was my own, I wouldn't care, I find pics of mine all over the place already. But I would need Mark Bando's permission before I posted it here, and I haven't spoken to him in a year or more.
