Product Details

Reproduction volunteer shield as worn by Hungarian volunteers during WW2.

After the German overthrow of the Hungarian government in 1944 thousands of Hungarians volunteered in the Waffen SS. As with most foreign volunteers in the SS they wore national flag patches on their sleeves. There were 3 Hungarian SS divisions raised in late 1944 but all were disbanded or destroyed by January 1945 by the advancing Red Army.

The shield depicts a Raven wth a crown in it's beak. This is a symbol of the 15th century Hungarian King Matthias I.

Patch features a bird at the centre, embroidered upon a shield with the colours of the flag of Hungary.
