Here is an interesting one that I have not been able to place a specific unit to. The reverse says they are member of " 7. Panzerjager Kompanie 7. HG". Now I need some help determining what HG unit they could have been a part of. It is dated January 1943. Could they be part of Fallschirm-Pz HG ? Any ideas?

(and apologies if members have seen some of these images before, as I have shared some on other forums over the years)

......the "Hermann Goring" Div does have some connection with Holland. The replacement and training Regt was located at Utrecht. The wounded were also posted there. Elements of this unit did get involved in the fighting in Arnhem.
The Division component in Holland was:


Ersatz-Rgt. Hermann Göring renamed Fallsch.Panzer-Ers. und Ausb.Rgt. Hermann Göring. In 1944 it occupied the following garrisons:
Regimentsstab: Utrecht
I. Btl. (1.-7.Kp.): Hilversum
II. Btl. (8.-12.Kp.): Amsterdam
III. Btl. (13.16.Bttr.): Amersfoort
IV. Btl. (17.-19.Kp.): Velten/24 km NNW of Berlin

In September 1944 it was reassigned from Wehrmacht Befehlshaber Niederlande to Fallschirm-AOK 1 and sent into combat, presumably in the Arnhem area.

Aangekomen in Nijmegen, trof Gräbner manschappen van Kampfgruppe Henke, onder bevel van Oberst Fritz Henke (Fallschirm-Lehrstab 1) die op dat moment het bevel voerde over de verdediging van Nijmegen en de Waalbruggen. Kampfgruppe Henke was, naast zijn eigen Staf (Stab Fallschirm-Ausbildungs-Regiment 1 ook wel Fallschirm-Lehrstab 1), opgebouwd uit: Ersatz-Bataillon 6 (Wehrkreis VI met 3 compagnieën), Hermann Göring Kompagnie „Runge", een opleidingseenheid voor onderofficieren en een compagnie van de Ordnungspolizei Rüstungsinspektion Holland die de bruggen moesten bewaken. Deze verdediging was aangevuld met enige Flak-eenheden die opgesteld waren als luchtafweer bij de spoorbrug en de verkeersbrug, twee 88 mm Flak van 4. Kompanie, 572 schwere Flak Bataillon, vijf stuks 47mm geschut en 20 mm luchtafweergeschut. In totaal had Henke ongeveer 750 manschappen tot zijn beschikking voor de verdediging van Nijmegen.

EEN BIJZONDERE DUITSE
EENHEID
Vanaf eind 1942 kwam het “II Ersatz- und
Ausbildungsbataillon Hermann Göring”
naar Harderwijk. Deze opleidingseenheid
maakte gebruik van de WGF-Kazerne, Kranenburg
Zuid met het toen nog niet bebouwde
aangrenzende terrein “De Veldkamp”
en het bij het station gelegen Lyceum.
Dit bataljon, soms met enkele duizenden
rekruten tegelijkertijd, leidde personeel op
voor de kustbeveiliging in Holland en voor
de “Division Hermann Göring / Fallschirm
Panzerdivision Hermann Göring”. De divisie
opereerde o.a. in Noord-Afrika, Italië en
Polen. Compagnieën van deze eenheid, versterkt
met andere onderdelen, zijn als bataljon
ingezet tijdens de slag om Arnhem. Onder
commando van Oberleutnant Artur
Wossofsky, stafofficier in Harderwijk, vond
inzet plaats op de Ginkelse Heide, bij de
Westerbouwing en in Oosterbeek. Niet alleen
Wossofsky maar alle officieren van het
bataljon, op één na, en tientallen soldaten
sneuvelden tijdens deze inzet.

Here is an Erkennungsmarke from the HG E & A Rgt I picked up a while back, perhaps this one was
from the Arnhem battle area somewhere....

ACE, I didn't see this until now. Thank you for your thorough reply. It is most helpful.
