SS-Freiwilligen-Panzer-Grenadier-Division "Nordland") and SS-Sturmbannführer und Major der Schupo Wilhelm Schlüter (Führer des SS-Artillerie-Regiment 54/ SS-Freiwilligen-Panzer-Grenadier-Brigade "Nederland"). SS-Obergruppenführer und General der Waffen-SS Felix Steiner presents the awards (August 1944 im Stabsquartier des III.(Germ.) SS-Panzer-Korps).

 

The same ceremony for Kausch, Schlüter, Ertel and Riipalu.

Does anyone have any info on Schluter?  He was transferred from the 4th SS polizei panzergrenadier division to Nederland.  Under normal circumstances the polizei did not wear SS uniforms/insignia.  I see he is wearing it with Nederland and wondering what brought about his transfer with full SS designation (note no SS polizei runes either below the breast).  Does anyone know how he was awarded the KC (for what act(s) of bravery)?  Must have been something fairly special for Steiner to award personally.
