Belonging to Nordland in Berlin 1945, it is belived to be the command vehicle of SS-Hauptsturmführer Hans-Gösta Pehrsson, commander of the so called Schwedenzug (the 3rd company of SS-Panzer Aufklaerungs-Abt.11, the "Sweden Platoon") and the driver SS-Unterscharführer Ragnar Johansson from Stockholm, that was killed by a Russian handgrenade.

Polish Winged Hussar

An old story to tell...
Husaria was the Polish heavy cavalry. They won many battles and were known as the most effective and powerful kind of military formation in our history. They were very significant for Polish history and still are a national pride.
Husarz – Józef Brandt

Husaria - Mariusz Kozik vel Lacedemon
Badge of the 1st Armoured Division
The Polish Winged Hussar bust made as a gift for my Father. It's the resin piece from Diorama Studio, painted with humbrols and oil paints. Those days I didn't use acrylics so it was a very long painting period. Nicely detailed, catches the viewers eye because of its colors and shape.
