    Presumably men of FJR5 remained part of the HGD until October 43 when they became part of FJD 2 ?

      Very nice tunic, Willi. Thank you for sharing it with us. Yes it will be very interesting to see a picture of Walther Kock with HG CT. I hope you for permission to share it with the rest of us here on the forum

        There is this reference in James Lucas’ “Storming Eagles” ...he knew many paras personally, having fought against them in Tunisia, indeed he was captured by them there ...

          It seems that very few paras actually received the cuff title itself ....even if aware of it ....

            Hi Willi,

            Thought same until I came across a photo recently of a FJR 5 officer wearing the Herman Göring cufftitle (in Tunisia). So there is evidence that FJ did wear the cufftitle within the ranks of the HG Division, perhaps more common with officer ranks.

            Regards,

            Mike
            I know some of PGR HG 2 were former soldiers of FJR 5
