Unit designation 127

Post by Mark Lawson » 06 Apr 2023 22:25

I have recently bought an M35 Q64 with a batch number of 550 and a larger stamping of 127. This is a 1937 manufactured helmet.

I have been told that some units stamped their unit number 127 in this case in the rear skirt. Does any members gave any information of units with a designation of 127, the helmet is painted in Luftwaffe blue but I have no idea if this is original, there are no traces of decals.

A lot of units numbered 127.

In the Luftwaffe, there was a Flak-Abteilung 127 and a Luftnachrichten-Abteilung 127.
