On the back of the photograph it is dated 1937, so if this is correct it predates the 23rd SS Volunteer Panzergrenadier Division. But these collar tabs do look VERY much like them. Hmmm...

Here's one, taken during the Invasion of Yugoslavia, April 1941. On the side is the ghost of 11. Pz. Div. But what does the encircled insignia mean?

Another one from Yugoslavia, April 1941, should be from/near Novi Sad. Licence plates are SS (I don't know an SS unit which might have been there at the time). Next to this truck is a vehicle of the 294. Inf. Div.

Any infos?

Tirdad, number 4 is a photograph of Finnish Infantry.

number 18 is a command tank of 18 Panzer Division.

number 42 looks like Cossacks, whether they are in German service is another matter.

Hello,

I would need help with a symbol.

Could this be the tactical symbol for something Sanität-related?

Thanks, Christoph! What does the "St" stand for inside the drawing?
