Hi all! I am wondering if someone here would be able to point me in the right direction for more information about Black Devil recruiting practices in Europe. My grandfather, not given to exaggerations and rarely spoke about is WW2 experiences, always said he was a "Black Devil", mentioneing black berets. Reading some books on the FSSF, he is not listed as a recruit who would have trained in Helena. We have his service records but again, no mention. Was there another platoon/group called the "black Devils" or wore black berets? Would his service records mention if he volunteered/was recruited to join the "Black Devils" as a replacement? Any info would help as there are numerous family members looking to resolve the difference between his own story and his service record. Many thanks.
