    Hello, here are some pictures of the HZB from my collection. Regards Holzwurm
    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!

    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.

    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.
    The typical and quite rare insignia for the garrison cap, as published in volume 3 of the series "Headgear of Hitler's Germany", published in 1998.

    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.

    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

    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.

    started a topic The Hilfszug Bayern

    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.

    Regards
    Mike
