I believe one of these rolls is the KTB for the "Germania" Regiment? Do you know what time period it runs from until?

Cheers

Thanks, that clarifies that; I believe none of the divisional or regimental KTB survived the war.

The KTBs for SS-Pz.Rgt.5, II./SS-Rgt. "Westland" and III./SS-Rgt."Nordland" survived the war. The KTB for SS-Pz.Gren.Rgt.Germania is lost in space.
