    The Hilfszug Bayern

    The caravan was part of the national-socialist propaganda campaigns. They were motorized catering columns (around 60 vehicles), which were intended for advertising and propaganda events (parades, party congresses, celebrations, etc.). The vehicles were manufactured by the Magirus company in Ulm. The most famous, the Hilfszug Bayern was named by propaganda as the only great catering train in the world.
    Here I post an original photo of the Hilfszug Bayern.

    If one would like to know more about the Hilfszug Bayern, he then should consult volume 4 from the series "Headgear of Hitler's Germany".
    The pages 452 through 472 do cover this subject with about 27 photos and images and lots of explanation. The HZB was supervised by the NSKK, Standarte M86 from Munich.
    This Hilfszug was at one moment a part of the Reichsautozug Deutschland, which is covered in volume 3 of this series. The pages 457 through 475 cover this subject with about
    23 photos and images. The RAZ was supervised by the Oberste SA-Führung. Both together were assigned to the Reichspropagandaleitung der NSDAP.
    Many of the photos for the sections mentioned in the series came from the city-archive from Munich, as well as Magirus (in fact Klöckner-Humboldt-Deutz AG at Ulm).

      I've got a number of photographs of different vehicles produced by Magirus for various purposes for the Hilfszug Bayern, which was under the auspices of the NSKK. The similar Reichsautozug Deutschland, also operating with customized Magirus vehicles, was under the auspices of the SA. Some of the vehicles were for cooking and catering, but there were also vehicles for broadcasting, filming, surgical procedures, showing films, etc.

            already posted in post 5
            Enjoy both posts with photos from my books.

            I will have a look in my HZB/RAZ box for more photos and make a random choice from the about 90 photos.
            I have to watermark them.

              Here some logos for your interest from Hilfszug "Bayern", as well as from Reichsautozug "Deutschland".
              Note the ones at the trucks. Aren't they beautifull?? (and so I have many more photographs.

              The truck drove from the kitchen-utilities to the event (and back).

                Here some photos with explanation from the Reichsautozug "Deutschland" to which the Hilfszug was a part. The Hilfszug was for food; the Reichsautozug was for taken care of events by means of amplifiers and such, as well as the building of stages and other things. Too much to mention (all credit: Saris).


                RAZ -1-.jpg

                The RAZ section "Rheinland" ready for departure. The crew members
                are wearing lighter colored overalls with a garrison cap. The car pennant
                has an early form of national emblem.

                RAZ -2-.jpg

                High level visitors at the "Reichsautobahnhof", the enormous RAZ garage,
                in late 1936. Next to Goebbels is Hugo Fischer, who points towards the vehicle.
                He was the Reichspropagandaleitung staff-leader. At Hitler's right is the RAZ
                leader, SA-Obergruppenführer Hermann Schäfer. Note the RPL motive upon
                the side of the amplifier loudspeaker truck, as well as the elevated footbridge
                for inspecting.

                RAZ -3-.jpg

                May 21, 1936: the first public appearance of the RAZ caravan during the
                opening of the Reichsautobahn-section between Köln and Hilden. The driver
                leaning out of the vehicle and chatting with a member from the SA, is wearing
                the garrison cap with its unique insigne. SA are guarding the motorway. The
                crowd on the overpasses mainly are political leaders with their party flags.

                        Great to see your cooperation, especially when it is related to new material.
                        Nice to see RAZ collar patches. The color crimson is of course while the RAZ was a technical Sturm from the Oberste SA-Führung.
                        This is mentioned in order F/Ch. Nr. 11 130 from December 29, 1939 and other publications.
                        Not much of them are known to exist in collections these days!

                          Goebbels is shaking hands with Schäfer, the "boss" from the organization.
