Established by order of the Gauleiter of Gau Westphalia-Sud prior to the constitution of the Volksturm from volunteers this group comprised several battalions.  Being only volunteers and uniformed in predominatly  RAD or Organization Todt uniforms these battalions were seen as elite Volksturm.  The cufftitle and badge were worn on the left arm.  Helmet decals were also produced and sometimes seen on left side of Stahlhelm.   $55 per set.

Note at this point no other info on rank insignia (aside from Volksturm regulation), weapon or equipment issue nor combat record is available.
