SS-Hscha. Lösch - Legion Condor fieldpost sent from Spain


Description

Extensive grouping to SS-Hauptscharführer and medic Andreas Lösch. Lösch, born in 1912, served as a "Legion Condor" member during the Spanish Civil War and was awarded the Spanish Cross in silver. He was an early SA member serving with Sturm 45/6. 

During WWII, Lösch served as a Waffen-SS Stabsscharführer (Spieß) and medic with several units. There are several field post letters part of the grouping which provide more details on his units which were (at least): 2. Sanitäts-Kompanie SS-Freiwilligen-Gebirgs-Division "Prinz Eugen", I./Art.Abt.SS-Polizei-Division, 4./SS-San.Ers.Batl. Stettin and "Waffen-SS Strafvollzugslager Mosbach" where he served from 1944 until 1945.

Lösch, serving as a medic POW, survived an attack against former Waffen-SS soldiers in the POW camp Nürnberg-Langwasser in April 1946 known to have committed by the Nakam organization (https://n-land.de/lokales/altenfurt/war-die-rache-doch-toedlich)

His grouping came straight from the family and was never available on the market before. All was found in several large boxes uncovered about 25 years ago.

Four postcards and one letter dating back to 1935-1938. 

Important handwritten letter of his girlfriend "Carmen" dating 28.VII. 1938. It comes with a green "Zensiert/Censurado" stamp in German and Spanish language which proofs it was censored by a unit of the Legion Condor. Four-page letter. DIN A4 size. She said goodbye with "Saludo a Franco!! Arriba Espana!! Heil Hitler!!

It must be a German-speaking Spanish girl he met in Spain. She definitely lives or serves in Spain. The letter is easy to read and will surely be a great source for additional research.

Press photograph of Hitler leaving his aircraft sent as a postcard to Obergefreiter Andreas Lösch. Postcard addressed to Andreas Lösch serving at "Sanitätsschule Standortlazarett Brückeburg" etc... Please see pictures.
