Hi, does someone knows who wrote this song and whether it is made specially for the Waffen-SS? Thank you in advance.

This one? http://ingeb.org/Lieder/grauekol.html

It‘s more WW1 themed about Flanders etc so no...

Hello, AlifRafikKhan

The lyrics posted by member ostland match the song in your link = it is the same song. As ostland also wrote, it's a WWI-themed song (also, in several songbooks it was credited as a song from WWI). Its earliest known publishing date is 1936. Obviously, it's not a song of the Waffen-SS (which didn't exist in 1936, nor during WWI). The recording in your link was made after WWII by the Neo-Nazi Wiking-Jugend.

Cheers,
Ivan
