Marcus, While I cannot identify the unit for pic 7 I have found another picture of the sign in Bundesarchiv. This is of several SdKfz 10 towing 28/32cm Nebelwerfer 41, so at least you know what kind of unit it was.

To which unit belong the following emblems?

Post by Paradise Lost » 22 Apr 2009 00:15

Hello everybody,
I need your help. I would like to find out to which unit belong the following emblems.
I think it's the 6th army, because the pictures were taken in May 1942 and you can see the 3th Infanteriedivision (mot.) and the 60th Infanteriedivision (mot.)

In the pictures there is a lot of Flaks and below the emblem you can read the word "ART". I'd say that it's a regiment of artillery.

Marcus, Looking through the thread linked below I see that your original pic 8 on here is Panzer-Abteilung 18.

OK, I will try to contact Akira Takiguchi, Laurence.
Hello Christoph, someone told me that it belongs to the Artillerieabteilung 833, but the emblems are different:

The one I am looking for is similar to this one.

If it is Art Abt 833 then why does it have the wheels from an 88mm Flak gun ? Was there another gun which used the same wheels ?

Thanks for posting the whole picture, I was worried I was being stupid !

Now a question from me.

I seem to remember that someone knew the identity of this unit which was using Bedford Umbau Pakwagen but I spent two hours searching for it last night but couldn't find it. The pic is cropped from the "Beute and Umbau" Thread.

I found the unit with the "upside down" A. It is 58. Infanterie-Division.

Could this be the "Truppenkennzeichen" of the 7. Fliegerdivision?
