Hi Grzesio,

Here another one mentioning about E-Fohn.
I wonder what was "Hangelafette in Betonturm"?
I know bout beton rings used for Vierlings and Drillings but turret is new to me.

It seems they wanted to put a Haengelafette on a standard concrete ring (vorhandene Reichsbahnaufbau) - to protect the crew from the rocket exhaust, I think.

I feel that ring played it's old role: splinterproof protection against JABOs.

What uniform is it?

A naval variant with a mysterious shield on the right hand side of the upper carriage - I think it could contain additional ammo clips for quick reloading?

Andrzej Ditrich,

the soldier on the photo #41 probably a member of a "Werkschutz" unit, propaganda photo probably...
I am not able to recognize the cuff title and the armband, sorry. :?

NSBO / NSBZO Nationalsozialistische Betriebszellenorganisation https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nationals ... ganisation

The steel helmet is significant, the old helmets like the M16 were common in these organizations.

Thanks Andrzej Ditrich,

so, a former "Werkschutz" unit back then...

Werkschutz Nazi: https://www.google.com/search?q=werksch ... =759&dpr=1

I am not into this topic, sorry, the best of luck for your researches....

But the "Z" could be "Zündapp" https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zündapp
