SS-Hscha. Lösch - SS-VT pack "Tornister"

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.

-

"VA 404/38 RZM" stamped as well as "3" numbered to the reverse. All leather straps and metal parts in place. Original cowhide cover. Both studs to fix the shoulder straps are missing. "VA 404/38 RZM" stamped on both shoulder straps. He has also his name and his unit written on one of the shoulder straps, but very hard to read.

Named "SS-Scharf." ... "... Staffel SS-T.St."B""? Hard to read but it will be named to Lösch for sure.

Signs of wear.
