A very scarce surviving SS ‘Wolchow’ stick in excellent solid condition and approx 36 inches in length. These hand-carved sticks get their name after the Wolchow region of Russia, where heavy fighting was experienced by the German forces, especially the SS divisions. Throughout the eastern campaign these sticks were carved by the German supporters and were given as tokens of friendship to the German soldiers. This particular stick is of the SS style normally attributed to the SS-Viking Regiment with the horse head, typical of ancient Viking ships design. Winding around the stick is a snake with its tongue out. The top section has carved the words ‘Djemjansk 1941-42 43 Rusland’. The circle, where the runes are to be found, has been de-nazified, sadly this was quite a common occurrence with the SS sticks. In Brian L. Davis’ book, German Army Uniforms (p174), there is a picture of an officer who carries a 'wolchow' stick. The picture caption states that the 'Wolchowstuck' is carved to commemorate the particular unit or campaign that the officer would have been involved in. These sticks seldom show up today and they are always considered a premium trophy of the intense fighting that raged on the eastern front. A very scarce and desirable piece of SS history.
