I received my copy of "Cas White The Invasion of Poland 1939" in the Post today and as I was looking through the pictures there is a picture of German soldiers captured by the Poles in one of the first attacks on Warsaw.I notice that they do not have the Reichsadler on their jackets and they are not SS as you can see their left sleeves and there isn't one there either.They are a group of middle age looking men(Combat strain?) who seem to be too old for Combat.Would the Poles have taken the time to remove that insignia from them or are they from some type of Auxiliary unit that didn't wear it as the Germans pretty well plastered everything with Swastikas?Any one have answer?
