Hi,

the "Charlemagne" had a few ones if i clearly remember (February 1945).
The various SS Panzer units in Normandy had them of course.

See You

Vince

Hello Owen,

unfortunately the real pictures of the "Charlemagne" in Pomerania are rare as hell...
Below one of the very few, taken between Neustettin and Bärwalde at the end of February 1945 after the first blood of the division.
Notice the Infanterie Karren 8 (the division has only a very few trucks and cars).

If i'm right, a reporting of early February 1945 list a few Kettenkrads for the division (and a few RSO too).
But it is not know if all were sent to Pomerania from Wildflecken.

See you

Vince
