Hi,

Composite material door, from a M-Benz 170VK or similar, but not an sEpkw, steel edging with Bakelite or Vulcanboard centre panel, cheap to make and saved using steel.

Looks like "Jagdpanzer Kompanie 1308", a later war unit, does anybody know any more ?

cheers lennard

I think the unit is Jagd-Panzer-Kompanie 1008.
Part of Panzerjäger-Abteilung 8 (8. Jäger-Division).
This unit had Jagdpanzer's.

Default Door markings

Hi Rick Admiraal,

Thanks for the information about the 8th Jager Division, on the door, just above the unit name is a white "V", this is the lower part of the divisional insignia, which is a revolving swastika over a V shaped branch of oak leaves.

I cannot post photographic examples of this insignia although I have some.

So as this is kompanie 1008, would it be correct if the other two companies of the PzJager Abt were 2008 and 3008 ?

Are the Jagdpanzers you mentioned JpzIV's ? approximately what date are you with this data, 1944 or 1945 or both ?

many thanks if you can answer some of the questions.

cheers lennard

Hi Aries22,

Yes, although I have not heard of the name Pertinax, I am sure we have the same idea, in my note above I said the middle of the door was either Bakelite (early sort of plastic in sheet form) or Vulcanboard (a compressed and resin impregnated kind of cardboard).

Many German vehicie bodies were made of these kind of composite materials, including some box bodies on 3 ton trucks, the later war Einheits drivers cabs, some entire M-Benz 170VK and Kfz17 bodies etc., etc.,

Very interesting subject.

cheers lennard

Hello Lennard,
Nice, i can see the Divisional logo in your new photo!

Only the Kompanie with Panzer's (Stug's or Jagdpanzer's) was given such a large number.
The other Kompanie's had their normal designation and equipment.
I forgot at what date they started doing this numbering.
You see, they just added 1000 to the original Abteilung number. So 8 Abt. had a 1008 Kp.
The same go's for other Panzerjäger-Abteilungen with Panzers.

I'm not sure when and how much panzers they had.
