Default Normandy Heer spray camo M35 Army - identified Unit

Here is one of my favourite Normandy lids:

Q64 M35 Ex DD with its original Apple green paint peeking through the camo, the camo is a very vibrant mixture of Brick Red, Tan, and Green. It has a 1938 dated size 56 reinforced liner band with aluminum buckle chinstrap which has been shortened.

It gets interesting with the name, Uffz. Klaudinger, 9th Panzer Reconiassance
Of the 4th Light division. The 4th light division consisted of many Austrian conscripts, and it appears the name Klaudinger is of Austrian descent.

The 4th light division was absorbed into the 9th Panzer Division in January of 1940.
The 9th Panzer Division fought in Normandy in July/August 1944.
There is also a pencilled in name "AL" at the rear of the skirt.
