The Waffen SS were among the biggest users of foreign weapons.This "Handschar" man is holding the Czech-made "ZBvz26" light machine gun.the original of the British Bren Gun.

With the coming of WW2 Reichsfuhrer SS Heinrich Himmler began the expansion of his Waffen SS that would continue almost until the final weeks of the Third Reich. What had initially been a solely "Germanic" and "Aryan" brotherhood opened its doors to an increasing number of foreigners. Among those "outsiders" who were now made welcome was a unique division made up of Bosnian and Croatian moslems.

The 13th Waffen SS Mountain Division "Handschar". Designated a "Mountain" division, it was mostly employed on anti partisan duties in the Balkans. Easily recognized by their blood-red and grey "Fez" headgear they quickly gained a reputation for brutality and savagery.
