Spoke to a W-SS veteran who PD also knows who served on the Russian front who said that they recieved furcoats and sheep skin jackets from collections back home in Germany. Also mentioned that he had some felt lined oakleaf trousers. I asked him what kept him warm Vodka he said no rum also ways had a bottle of rum on his person. Told me he dropped his bottle when the Russians pushed through his postion and he went back for it.
