He liked to lounge about in his SS uniform 8 years after the end of the war?
He was a sort of poster boy for the waffen ss
Indeed he was a *former* SS Major (although the SS equivalent for major was Obersturmbannführer). However in this picture he already is a Standartenführer (equals Colonel in Wehrmacht).
The Spanish did not have hard feelings towards the Nazi era like the rest of Europe so he had no trouble wearing his SS uniform in 1950´s… one could consider him as the father of Reenactors! 🙂
