4th SS Trumpet Banner
Quality, black velvet reproduction SS Trumpet Banner belonging to the 4. SS-Polizei-Panzergrenadier-Division.
The 4. SS Polizei Panzergrenadier Division was originally assigned to the Ordnungspolizei, the national police, under the command of Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler, and was independent from the SS proper at this time. The unit took part in infantry combat in both France and the Eastern Front before being absorbed into Waffen-SS in 1942.
After retraining as a Panzergrenadier division in early 1943 the 4th SS Division was assigned to Greece. They were driven back through the Balkans in 1944 and were sent to the Baltic coastline to face the Red Army. The division was part of a force assigned to Obergruppenführer Steiner to relieve Berlin in April 1945 but the planned counter-attack never took off. The remnants of the division surrendered to an American force in May 1945.
This banner would have been hung from a trumpet during parades or ceremonial duties. The banner measures 16" x 20" (41cm x 51cm) and consists of silver bullion embroidered on black velvet. A SS Runes design is on the reverse side.
