Hello Max and Dirk,

I've been trying to identify the triangular pennant without luck. Any ideas?
I'm curious about this as pennant well. My thought is that since we see the Balkenkreuz but no swastika it probably has no official Government affiliation but maybe is a private organization, such a a WWI Veterans Association or something like that. But that's only a theory, perhaps someone can set us straight.
Cheers,
Max

Max,
Good thinking regarding the pennant. I'll keep looking as well.

Hi Kerry,

what an excellent question! Really very difficult! But I think that I could find the leading bike:
Ariel Square Four 1000.
Here a pic of this motorbike (source: https://www.autoevolution.com/moto/arie ... tml#agal_2).

Best regards

Bert

Hi Bert,
Well done, not an easy one. It could also be a "Squariel" 600, but happy with 1000. What a beautiful restoration!
The other two are DKW NZ 350s I think.
Congratulations, you have control.
Cheers,
Kerry.

Hi Kerry,

thank You very much! I think You are right with the "Squariel" 600. I didn´t know this type until today. Thanks for that!
Today an easier question (I couldn´t find a better one without a long search). Who can ID this vehicle?

Best regards

Bert

P.S.: Kerry , a request from me: could You, please, post Your pic of the Bedford Kommandeurswagen under the "vehicle identity requests"?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Bert,
It looks like a beute American Bantam BRC-40 missing its headlamps.

Hi Max,

excellent! That was a reord in ID! Maybe too easy for such experts like You.
I think that there were captured not so many of this cars by German soldiers.
So it is Your turn to go on with the quiz.

Best regards

Bert

Thank you, Bert. No I don't imagine many were captured but here is another showing the unusual windscreen shape:

Excuse me but I have a Medical appt today so will try to find a suitably challenging quiz problem later.

Our new puzzle is an unusual vehicle of the Reichspost:

Time for a clue? Well, there's a clue within the photo if you look towards the postman's shoe (which I suspect most of you have probably already noticed).
Cheers,
Max

Hi Max,

could it be a Citroen P 19, although it is a vehicle of the Deutsche Reichspost?

Best regards

Hi Bert,
Excellent! Hard to tell from this photo if it is P 19 variant but It's definitely a Citröen Kegresse. Actually I think it is a type C6, the civil version of the P 17 as shown here:

It may have originally belonged the Austrian Post and ended up in Reichspost livery after the Anschluss.

Congratulations and I turn the quiz over to you.

Hi Max,

thank You very much. I thought it could be the type P 19, because the Deutsche Reichspost got two halftrack busses of the type P 19 in the year 1933. I could find a pic of the P 19 in the book "Reichspost-Album - Postomnibusse der dreißiger Jahre" by Volkhard Stern. I didn´t know that the Austrian Bundespost also had such vehicles. But there is an information in the same book, that the Deutsche Reichspost got several Citroen C 6 postbusses model 1929/30 in the year 1938. That´s the confirmation that You are right with the designation C 6. You are really an exccelent expert!

Here is my new question:
who can ID this vehicle on the left?

Best regrads

Bert
