Just looking for help identifying a unit from a German dog tag I have recently come in possession of.
I believe the unit is Korps-Nachrichten-Abteilung 438 unfortunately I'm fairly naive when it comes to this detail of research.
Any help with any information or history of this unit, or how I can find it would be greatly appreciated.
I have attached a photo of the tags

Later it was renamed as Panzerkorps-Nachrichten-Abteilung 438.
Formed on January 12, 1940 with four companies for the XXXVIII. Army Corps . In January 1945 the unit was assigned to the XXXVIII. Subordinated to Panzer Corps and renamed Panzerkorps-Nachrichten -abteilung 438.
Replacements for the unit was from Nachrichten-Ersatz-Abteilung 2, largely based in Poland.
However looking at this one it was made after 1945. There are lots similar about on Ebay.
