On 12 July 1942 Germany formed the ‘Frikorps Danmark’, a legion of Danish volunteers. Their purpose was to aid the fight against Russia on the Eastern Front. They saw combat there until 20th May 1943 when they were disbanded.
These propaganda labels were issued in Denmark by Nazi German authorities and were intended to act like semi-postal stamps. Their purpose was to benefit Danish Legion soldiers fighting on behalf of the Germans on the Eastern Front on free military mail; thus, there was no base denomination, only supplementary value.
