Hi Max,

thanks for You reply. First I have to correct my last reply:
first to the ID: it is a Büssing-NAG type Burglöwe 30 L“ because of the longer wheelbase.
Second to the license plate: the „Technische Nothilfe“ was subordinated to the Ministry of the Interior and so to the police. So all their vehicles had a license plate with the letters „Pol“.

First the TN (Technische Nothilfe) had different, not specialized vehicles. Searching a suitable vehicle for the TN they found a vehicle on the International Motor Show in Berlin 1937: a Büssing Burglöwe type 25 L, but the payload of this type was too small (2,5 tons). So the TN got the big brother of this vehicle, the type 30 L. It was a vehicle with a special superstructure, a dark green painting of the superstructure like the police vehicles, but with a silver strip (about 30 cm) on the side walls and a large national eagle on both doors. The truck could carry 20 men (including driver), all the material and a bycicle.
On the first pic: "motorisierter Bereitschaftszug" (motorized emergency unit), existing out of one leader, two squad leaders, three drivers, 18 men with one car (leader and three men) and one truck (20 men including the driver).
On the third pic: the truck from the back with the spare wheel, the bycicle and the getting in on the side.

Here two more pics of the TN:
First pic: a training of the TN in Berlin with an overturned double-decker bus (You can see the Büssing truck in the background).
Second pic: another vehicle of the TN: a Steyr type 640.

Best regards

Hi Uncle, I believe it is an Adler Trumpf Junior, similar to the one in this photo.

Hi Max, I should probably have posted this shot instead, which shows the broader strip on the radiator grille that some of the models have.

Hi,

I cannot ID this special vehicle and need the help of You. Maybe one of You can tell me what kind of vehicle and what type it is.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Bert

I'm pretty sure it's a 1,5 ton Opel Blitz firetruck. They where with full cab and cabrio, and this must be a cabrio. It's the first time to see it with an ss plate though.

Hi Piet,

thank You very much for this ID! Excellent! For me it is also the first time to see such an Opel firetruck with an ss plate. Interesting the spare wheel on the right side.

Best regards
