Members of the German Waffen-SS Panzergrenadier Regiment 4 “Der Führer” Division, SS-Verfügungsdivision (SS Dispositional Troops) drive through Paleisstraat near the Royal Palace in a Wanderer W11/1 after the capitulation of Dutch forces.
Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands. May 15 1940. (Nb. they are towing a 75-mm light infantry cannon LeIG 18)
As of May 1940, the Division was part of the campaign in the west used in The Netherlands, Belgium and France.

The Battle of the Netherlands lasted from 10 May 1940 until the main Dutch forces surrendered on the 14th. Dutch troops in the province of Zealand continued to resist the Wehrmacht until 17 May when Germany completed its occupation of the whole nation.

After the close of the Battle of France, the SS-VT was officially renamed the Waffen-SS. In December 1940 the Germania Regiment would be removed from the Verfügungs-Division and used to form the cadre of a new division, SS-Division Germania.
It was made up of mostly "Nordic" volunteers from the newly conquered territories, Danes, Norwegians, Dutch and Flemings.
By the start of 1941 the Verfügungs-Division would be re-dubbed Reich (in 1942 Das Reich), and Germania was renamed Wiking. (Colourised by Richard James Molloy from the UK)

Game 5 Turn 6 phase 1 - the German player rolls 24446. With only one senior leader on the table he can only make use of one of the 4s with the others a waste. This is not the result he was hoping for. He uses his Platoon CO to order the two teams in the intrenchment and the mg42 MMG team back onto overwatch and settles in for another interminable wait as the British player starts his preparations again. The British player rolls 54121 for his 1st phase of the turn. He uses the 4 to activate his platoon Sergeant who orders one of the infantry sections forward into the farm house. At this point the German player uses his last COC point to ambush the section before they can enter the building. He hopes to wipe out the enemy section by catching them in the open. Unfortunately he only lands 4 out of the 8 shots with 1 KIA the result. The remainder of the enemy section slips into the cover of the building and the German player is left pondering his bad luck. The Sergeant then uses his remaining 2 command initiatives to get the 2" mortar to drop smoke & place the PIAT team on overwatch covering the road behind the farm house which the Sherman had been covering. With the PIAT team now covering the road the British player can move the Sherman tank forward to support the infantry attack on the farm yard. The German player knows he has to regain the initiative but how? #toofatlardies #chainofcommand #boltaction #warlordgames #wargaming #28mm #worldwartwo #militarygaming #militaryhistory #tabletopgaming #operationmartlet #12th SS #panzergrenadier #atthesharpend

Game 5 Turn 4 phase 23 - 24. In phase 24 the German player earns his second COC point and also decides to finally deploy his second squad. He surprises the British player by deploying them in entrenchments (part of his original support option). He then chooses to deploy his Platoon CO who then places the entrenchment squad & mg42 MMG team on overwatch. Deploying his CO with one squad still off board is risky as th deploy said squad will now require a 4-6 on a d6. The German player decides the risk is worth having a squad off board to use for ambushes. #toofatlardies #chainofcommand #boltaction #warlordgames #wargaming #28mm #worldwartwo #militarygaming #militaryhistory #tabletopgaming #operationmartlet #12th SS #panzergrenadier

An MG34 machine gun team of the Polizei Division in France, late May 1940. The Polizei Division was assigned to Army Group C, which was positioned opposite France’s Maginot Line and took no active role in the first 45 days of the campaign. Later, the division had a hard time of it during the Western campaign, overcoming French units only after heavy hand-to-hand fighting.
