SS Decals and Party Shields
SS decals are very different from any other decals presented on this website. They are comprised of black sigrunes on a silver shield that is bordered in black. The manufacturing process was more or less similar to that of Heer decals. A two sheet process was used wherein the SS runes were applied to the metallic silver shield. SS represents the "Schutzstaffel" which was originally formed as Hitler's bodyguard unit in the early 1930s.
As with Heer decals, there are a number of SS decal variations as the different helmet manufacturers obtained their SS decals from a number of different decal manufacturers. Almost all SS decals presented here are in Norwegian collections and many of them are related to Norwegian SS volunteers.
