Hi,

One can see the Wappen(TKZ) of an Signal-Unit of the Luftwaffe.
The signe is knownen but not yet decrypted.
The meaning of the sign is the symbol triode-electron tube which is in
Amplifiers. The flashes are the sign for the radio message-
Transmission. The I.Abt. is designated by the Roman one (I).
The tri-latitude for three, could be reduced to a unit with the Regulations No. 3

I just wonder is this a unit emblem or simply a joke with the number '8'?

Hi Bert,
And thanks for that! Well, let it be Katze, not Acht. Or they were acht Katzen back then in the 98. ID? :roll: :D
Cheers!

Hi Everyone,
I've just found this topic and seen many interesting unit markings in the posts. Especially LW and infantry markings were new for me. The last LW marking - triode with lightnings - is really cool.
If you don't mind, I share two markings below. Does anyone know what they mean? Unit markings? Something else?
1. Dark (maybe black) "A" in a light (white?) circle (on a Jagdpanther).

2. Heart (red or green) with six (light, maybe white) arrows (I've only seen it on a Panzerjaeger Wanze in Berlin but there's two of this marking on Bison's decal sheet 35072 without any information. The sheet is for various halftracks and tanks, so I think this marking is not a single Panzerjaeger's one.)

Many thanks for any info in advance!

This Panzer III with what appears to be a wild boar head on its turret side appeared on a television programme so I took a screen shot of it, does anyone know the unit ?

Hello folks,
I have this posted on another forum, seeking the identity of the general featured. Unfortunately it has not been possible to id, but there is a suggestion that identifying the unit marking would help. Please can somebody identify the emblem, an armoured fist striking down to the left, almost like a rotated GvB SS emblem.
Thank you,
Kerry.

How about 78. Infanterie- or Sturmdivision emblem from a reverse negative https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fichier:7 ... ision_.svg Maybe the big honcho drove his own staff car. At least he looks right-handed when mirrored. Maybe Hans Traut who was a RK bearer and 78. Sturm-Division commander.
