Latvian ss,
1.Latvian legion. blank collar patch or ss runes, Latvia sleeve shield
2.Latvian 15th ss division fire cross collar patch but when 19th was formed the fire cross was adopted by it, the 15th division then were issued with the sun and stars collar patch.
3.Latvian 19th ss division the fire cross collar patch and sleeve shield.
really in the end most Latvians were wearing ss rune collar patches because they were great fighting men and the wearing of the runes were overlooked by the Germans.
also the double armed swastika collar patch was issued to the 19th division in error i have seen 2 photos with Latvians wearing the double armed collar patches with Latvian sleeve shields. the collar patch was ment for a 3rd Latvian ss division but after manpower trouble it was given to non ss camp guards. i hope this helps regards
Ben.

Young Jack and I already have Latvian SS uniforms on the go. PM me with an email address and I'll send a photograph of us both.
