    Work about HZB and RAZ is in progress. Text is done (30 pages), now I
    am sorting out and cataloging the available photos (over 250).
    Furthermore I am waiting for extra photos from various German archives.
    Various persons did send me material or were of help otherwise. Thanks!

    I still can use photos, mainly related to the wearing of the uniforms (SA,
    NSKK as well as the Sonderhilfszuguniform). Asisstance will be credited!

    But it is not decided yet. The start is anyway in German as I am best in that
    and it is easier, as I cann follow the old publications.
    I am sorting out now hundreds of newspapers for new information or to check
    old information.
    This booklet/flyer is what I am looking for. A copy would be sufficient.
    Who knows who did buy it from a German auction?

    Every viewer/reader of this thread is asked if he is willing to cooperate. If so, please contact me by PM and we possibly may come together!
    When it will be published is not known yet, as this depends on how much work it is gonna be. But if and having cooperated, a free sample of
    printed result is anyway on the list.

    Have seen where it was autioned. I think it is largely as the booklet: Der Beamten-Hilfszug Bayern, along with a prospect from Magirus (12 pages in Din A3).

    My old research from the years 1996/1997 came out of the drawers again.

    Some great material on this thread, thanks to the contributors! I must say, the HZB is a rather interesting subject.

    Also - all political aspects aside - planning, building and launching a unit of this nature, size and quality in such a short period of time (and with a lot of custom-made vehicles and equipment at that) was a truly impressive achievement.
