A fantastic album put together post WW2. The album cover has the title “Kriegsdienst 22/10/1941 – 26/04/1946” interesting to see that Karl include his time as a POW as war service. There are some outstanding photos of SS Gruppenführer Karl Demelhuber and the Staff Officers of Befehlshaber der Waffen-SS Niederlanden. Also a very interesting and rare group of photographs of the presentation of the Julleuchter and the accompanying Julfest.

A great album with supporting documentation in need of much more research.
