SS-Begleitkommando des Führers (literally: "SS Escort Command of the Führer") was originally an eight-man SS squad assigned with protecting the life of Adolf Hitler during the early 1930s.

Formation

It was formed on 29 February 1932 to protect Hitler while he travelled outside Munich and the borders of Bavaria in Germany. The Begleitkommando was replaced by the Führerschutzkommando after Hitler became Führer in 1934.
