    a more complete picture of H. Kinz in the K.C.recipients of the Waffen-SS and the police by J.Schneider indicates that he served in the SS-Polizei Division at a time that a somewhat mixed uniform was worn i.e. police uniform but with the SS sleeve eagle. In his case he wears the SS Runen on the tunic indicating him to be a full member of the SS.

    BTW: the Scherzer reference book on K.C.Recipients questions the bestowal of the K.C. as there is no official documentation available in the German archives.

    hello readers:

    in addition to earlier posts it may be of interest that a number of officers on active duty with the army during the war were put on detached service with the Waffen-SS (kommandiert) Example is the K.C. recipient Hptm.d.R.Otto Toll KIA while on duty with the 12.SS-Pz.Div. "Hitler Jugend" as co.cmdr in the engineer battalion. Others transferred . Such cases also took place in connection with the L.W. and K.M.

    A much circulated photo of high ranking generals ( F.M.von Rundstedt and others) visiting the above mentioned division with a view of saluting officers in the two then prevailing methods of military salutes in the German armed forces.
