Default Polizei - Vehicles thread

Hi all,

I thought it could be useful to have a thread for Polizei vehicles/questions related to Polizei vehicles.

Here is one I picked up this week of 6x SS police truck including gasoline/petrol carrier. Location unknown.

Number (L-R)

POL-72005
POL-72007
POL-72008
POL-7200X
(Unknown)
(Unknown)

'RFSSuChdDtPol (Main Office Security Police)
POL-71001-73000'

The unit symbol appears to be the 10 spades card.

'SS Xa'
'SS XXa'
'SS XXa'

The drivers appear civilian through clothing, probably Russian. The first vehicle has a bespoke vehicle badge from 'SS /Xa'

I believe that the 'O' can be telephony. If someone can add information about the unit or location/date, I would be interested to hear.

I've gone through https://www.wwiidaybyday.com/ and a few other sources but no joy on the 10 Spades so far as a unit symbol.

Cheers,
Gerard

The tactical mark is a playing card. This one. On the right wing of cars.

Thanks a lot for the information ! For sure that is the same location and I believe the ID card may be one of the men, I will try to get a close up and post later this evening to compare the faces. Do you happen to know where this location is at ?

The photo you posted above is probably taken same day due to the way the vehicles are lined up the same in both images, same dog etc.

I think that the photo was taken in the second half of 1942 in Rostov-on-Don or Krasnodar. I live in Krasnodar. The building where they were located has been preserved. Now there is government. I can’t get into the courtyard to compare.

I've compared the close ups of the men in the first pic above with the ID card and no match. Thanks again for the information on this.
