British men in Nazi SS uniform: Rare Waffen SS British Free Corps badge for sale
A rare Nazi badge, similar to the three lions on the English football shirt, is to be auctioned. The badge belonged on the nazi uniform of soldiers in the British SS Freikorps Brigade. The British Nazi unit, still a big WW2 mystery, was formed in January 1944. Members, recruited from a variety of sources, were officially accepted into the Waffen-SS when it was named the British Free Corps. Those in the brigade were given German uniforms bearing the Union Flag shield and the badge bearing the three lions. The German Waffen-SS British Free Corps (later named British SS Freikorps Brigade) was the brainchild of John Amery, son of Conservative Cabinet minister Leo Amery.

Adolf Hitler items (from Hitler's wardrobe and Berghof retreat) to be sold at auction
Alexander Autographs is planning the biggest Adolf Hitler and Nazi militaria sale in decades. There will be the usual photographs and papers signed by the leader of Third Reich. But the sale also includes memorabilia item from Hitler's wardrobe and Berghof retreat, most from the Lattimer collection. On the list: Hitler's matchbox cover; his silverware; the key to his "Eagle's Nest" office; his tea cup; and his Treffen-Westfalen S.A. badge (located next to the Iron Cross on his uniform); Eva Braun's gold locket and powder compact (each stamped with the "EB" butterfly monogram designed by Nazi architect Albert Speer).

Nazi badges of the 3rd SS division Totenkopf almost double auction estimate
11 Nazi patches from the 3rd SS division Totenkopf, which shot 97 men of the Royal Norfolk Regiment in 1940, had been valued at £300 but went for £550 to a private collector from Essex, who had offered up to £2,000 but bidding stopped at £550. The 3rd SS division Totenkopf was made up of concentration camp guards and its "Death's Head" insignia became famous. Auctioneer Clinton Slingsby said: "Buying such items does not mean you sympathise with Nazism; it happened and as part of history, such things are important and of interest." The Nazi insignia was part of a larger collection of military memorabilia that a Lincolnshire man had found in his attic.

11 Nazi uniform patches from the 3rd SS division Totenkopf for sale
The sale of Nazi memorabilia from a German unit which killed nearly 100 British POWs has been called a "disgrace" by a war veteran. 11 uniform patches from the 3rd SS division Totenkopf are expected to sell for £300 each. The Totenkopf ("death's head") division - one of Nazi Germany's most ruthless and formidable combat formations - massacred 97 soldiers of the Royal Norfolk Regiment, who surrendered during the evacuation of Dunkirk in 1940. The carnage was ordered by SS officer Fritz Knochlein, who was later executed for war crimes. Offered Nazi badges and lapels feature the "death's head" skull, Nazi insignia and the Third Reich eagle.
