I meant about the Danes Bill. I've read a few in Danish, and am sure that there would be a market for these books in English, but I've never seen any for sale.

I've read Adrian Weale's book, very good indeed.

Sadly this is the case with books on the Finnish SS as well

I might add that a number of britts serverd under the Swedish volunteer Hans-Gösta Pehrsson command for while in 3./Pz.Aufkl.Abt. 11 'Nordland'. (This is also the place were most of the Swedes serverd toghter.)

For how long I do not recall.

Indeed, this was where the BFC ended up in March/April 1945. They were given at least one halftrack and a Schwimmwagen.

Yes, and my Finnish leaves something to be desired.



Cheers Bill, I've never heard of that one. Unfortunately it seems to be out of print though.

Hi Chorlitz, I am the one who`s website you copied :wink:

@ALL,

Anyway, I have returned to my BFC impression after a two year break (in which I did Volkssturm),
the reasons for returning to the BFC were several, some of them I will list here....etc
Mit Kameradengruß


Wunderbar Herr Medland :D
Congrats on a wonderfull, intresting and unusual portrayment,
you are one of the "legends" of the reenactment scene :wink:

Iam happy to see you are still "in the fray!" as it were, as there were
rumours floating round the campfire that you had left for pastures
new, glad to see you are still one of the few (lol)

Auf wiedersehen, Peiper

I am sure we will have the pleasure of meeting some day.

Is there more than one "Nordland" reenactment group in Sweden?

Cheers, Bill.

Yes. There is MHS and there is FHF. FHF is the one im in, theres a link you can press (its all in Swedish) but there is Photos etc. Members from FHF broke lose from MHS and made FHF, due to many reasons. FHF is (in my opinion) one of the best Reenactment groups in Sweden and World Wide, (if I may brag a bit ;) )

BFC filmclip

This is the first two minutes of the last episode in "Foyles War" called "The Hide"
which starts off with a scene showing the BFC in Dresden barracks, February 1945.
(The rest of the episode is post-war intrigue and murder and nothing to do with
the historical BFC).

It should be noted that two members of the BFC died in the Dresden bombing

Cheers, Bill.

A short 20 second filmclip from "Joy Division", the clip shows an SS-Mann from the BFC fighting in Berlin.

The soundtrack is of SS-Brigadeführer Hans Jüttner announcing the formation of the BFC, 13th April 1944.

Only one BFC Soldier fought in Berlin 1945, Wilhelm "Bob" Rössler

amazing, truly stunning to see film footage of obscure foreign SS volunteers.

Maybe we'll see accurate re-enactments of Handschar or Prinz Eugen in the future.
