Hello Calvin,

I will attempt to decypher the emblems for you. I am sure other members will correct me if I am wrong. The emblem on the left is a sign for Cavalry. The emblem on the right is for a Cavalry Bicycle Company (could be recon). The middle one I'm not sure about. It is similar to the Corps Headquarters emblem which is square. So it could denote a Cavalry Bicycle Company attached to Corps Headquarters.

Best regards,
Larrister

That's our boy Mike, Bedford MWD or maybe just Bedford MW.

Still a bit baffled by the one on the right but I am closing in on it.

Hello Calvin et al.
The horse and rider on a disc is the sign of 7 Aufklarungs Abteilung, the blue and white diamond is the emblem of its parent 7 Infanterie Division.
Nice photo by the way.

Default 511 not 537

The eagle and lightning bolts within a circle is the sign of 511 Nachrichten Regiment not 537, the latter's emblem is more upright and on a shield.

RW,

What is the source of the symbols in your thread. Is it possible for you to share it with us.

Best regards,
Larrister

Hi,

This Captured British vehicle is probably a Humber F.W.D. Heavy Utility Car
Here is a link to a picture of a preserved one on "Tanxheaven"

Hallo David:

I agree. That was my firstchoice also but I wanted to check the Morris Commercial CDSW files I had as it has a very similar front end and tyres etc.
However all photos I have of the Morrie show an open topped vehicle with canopy top. A good job I think, given the focus of the photo was on people not vehicles.
Bill

Hello Larrister
I drew the symbols in my thread. As for sharing you'll have to wait until my proposed book on the subject of truppenkennzeichen sees print.
For now as this is a thread for unidentified emblems here are some of my unknowns...

"The trrops around vehicles are SS but I don't think this is an SS unit vehicle..."

You're nearly right; the captured british truck was used by a TENO unit ,other vehicles with the same sign have police license plates (eg Pol-65335), and the personel with them wear TENO uniforms.

The emblems on WH80449 are those of 34 Infanterie Division (shield)and XII Armeekorps (S), I hope someone finds that useful.
