Default Post your unknown unit and or tactical emblem photos

Hello all. Bill M. made a great suggestion about this type of thread. He has started a thread about unkown vehicles and the identity so it just follows naturally that there is a thread dedicated to unit emblems, and tactical signs. Everyone can contribute and hopefully we will have a great reference here for all of us to utilise......
I will start with a couple from my collection that have not been ID'd yet.

Mike

Todd, If this photo was taken between 43-45 the tactical symbol would be for a calvary platoon. the other symbols in and around the square would tell what kind of platoon. IE machine gun, stabs, etc...
AS for the unit emblem I will check that and get back to you.. Mike

Here's one from my collection. I posted this one before Someone suggested that symbol belonged to LuftGauKommando 'Moscow'. My understanding of this command was that it was created in anticipation of taking Moscow. Members from this unit were then to set up shop in the occupied city. Well, we all know what eventually transpired. Fascinating bit of history any way you look at it. What about the 'B' symbol? What does this signify? If you look closely at the grill, you'll see some damage to the grill. This was from shrapnel or maybe even a couple of rounds. There are a couple of other images in the group that have a close-up of the grill and you can see the damage better.

Para03,

It looks like your symbol is indeed Luftgaukommano Moscau according to this site: http://chrito.users1.50megs.com/_dat...ngsemblems.htm
It is similar to the symbol on the fender of your photo.

Thanks Todd! Neat sight by the way. I'm going to push my luck here and ask if any one can tell me the significance of the symbol located on the other fender.....

Just thinking, isnt there a way to track down a vehicle's unit using the licence plate number??
Isnt't there no register or something for that? I know there is a place online who have info about numbers in the different wehrkretz's.

Tom, Good question. I had that question myself but from what I understand you can Id the wehrkreis but not the particular unit/division. Mike

There is a symbol at www.wwiidaybyday.com for Gen. Kdo. Flak-Korps II le. Flak-Abteilung 74. which is the same as the one in pic #126.

Cheers
