I am looking for anything related to the 31st SS "Batschka" Division. Flags, buckles, patches, etc. Reproduction or authentic.

Thanks

The 31st SS Vol. Panzer Div. "Bohmen-Mahren" was a scratch Division in name only.... The only items that would directly be related would be documents, IDs, and the like.. No special insignia, buckles, cuff titles, collar tabs....
The "Bohmem-Mahren" cuff title was A-SS, not W-SS.

Thanks. Can you please briefly explain the difference between W-SS and A-SS? Sorry I'm a newbie

The A-SS were the prewar black uniformed basically "body guard" units.... The Waffen SS were largely the combat troops of the SS, originally recruited from the A-SS and Police, later from Volunteers and draftees from
many countries. They wore field green uniforms.

Many other differences, do some basic research to learn more.
