One of these units was the notorious Poulos Verband, commanded by George Poulos. It was stationed in Kali Vrissi (near Salonika) and was wore a mixture of German army and police uniforms with a small greek flag on the left arm. It fought mainly partisans but also anyone suspected of sympathizing with the communists. In November 1944 it was transferred to Ljubjana (Slovenia) were it fought the partisans until March 1945 when it was sent to Kitzbühel (Austria).
Poulos was hanged after the war but many of the men from this unit fought the communist guerrilla in Greece during the Greek Civil War (1946-1949).
