Hi Mike,

On second thoughts, as the Krupp is a Kfz 70 (personnel carrier) rather than a Kfz 69 (gun limber) I would think it probably belongs to either the 11th or 12th Kompanie, III Bataillon LSSAH. Going by other photos, I would lean torwards 11th Kompanie.

Shame the original image is so small... the marking on the right fender (our left) is the vehicle number within the Kompanie (eg, 8, 9, 10, etc).

Cheers
Steve

Jochen:
I cannot say for the unit ID but the car looks quite a bit like a Peugot 302 or 402 from mid 1930's.

number plate

Post by stoveb » 19 Jun 2006 00:31

Hi there,

The number plate range 93XXXX appears to be associated with HJ, as the 92XXXX range is linked to LAH. By the look of your photo, I would say it was HJ during training in Belgium, 1943-44.

Cheers

It seems that the number is SS-932 900.

Hi Steve

Well, ahem, er, interesting.

I try to never make judgements, but about 80% of the softskin photos on that site I have seen on ebay in the last six months or so including many I have nicked myself after the auction was over. And...with my very good taste...........almost all of them sold that I thought to nick so seller and buyer were both happy. As with you, my nicks go into my private files not to be published so no one gets hurt.

Just an observation from a very old observer.

hi

Post by stoveb » 24 Jun 2006 00:41

Hi Bill,

Absolutely, a lot of this stuff is in the public domain, and don't get me wrong, I've right-clicked my fair share of images!

It just seems a bit off for a website to set itself up as an 'archive' and then use images gathered from the net and seem to pass them off as part of said 'archive'. If I use an image from a book to illustrate a point I always give credit to where the image came from, they could do the same.

Oh well, no one is being harmed really, so it doesn't really matter too much in the grand scheme of things.

Cheers
Steve
