Women in the SBG
During W.W.II the SS employed female auxiliaries ( SS Helferinen ) within their ranks. These were used mainly as Signal personnel with many decoding secret radio and fax ciphers. As far as we know they never saw front line service and as such were not issued with weapons or side arms ( as were some Luftwaffe Helferinen ). The SBG also allows females to enlist and take part in our events whenever possible. At public shows or during filming sessions etc. the women (if required) must dress and act as their true life counter parts and therefore are excluded from dressing as combatants. Most women dress as DRK nurses, SS Helferinen or wear period costumes.
