    Grrrrr.... that the abbreviation "SS" is also used for Steam Ship and in German for Sommersemester (summer term), doesn't help researching. ;)

    No my friend. Here is the answer. The unit was Sturmabteilung "Ezquerra" let by Obersturmbannfuhrer Miguel Ezquerra. Last days in Berlin.

    Next question, which Waffen SS unit captured Gen Vlasov the future commander of the ROI?

    Well took me a while to answer this and yes. Over to you Kai. There are no current quizzes going on. Time to rejuvenate them.
