    Shoulderboards Gebirg. Rgt. 139

    Hi All,

    So I received these shoulder boards recently.
    They were intended for a Hauptmann in the 139th Gebirgsjäger Regiment.
    I hope you like them!

    Some small info on the 139th:

    The 139th Gebirgsjäger regiment was part of the 3rd Gebirgs Division, and took part in the capture of Norway (Narvik). After the capture of Norway the regiment was sent to capture Murmansk but failed to do so. When after that the 3rd Gebirgs Division got moved to the southern part of the Eastern Front, the 139th Gebirgsjäger regiment stayed behind in Lappland and came under the command of the 6th Gebirgs Division. The 139th Gebirgsjäger regiment also got strengthened with a bataillon of the 112th Gebirgs-Artellerie-Regiment for their duties in Lappland.

    Kind regards,

    AW

    Did you know that this could also include Reserve-GJR 139 ?

      I did not know that...
      But I have looked it up, and it could well be possible of course.
      Then the history of these boards would be a bit different.
      But is there anyway to tell if they belonged to the regiment or the reserve then?

      Kind regards,

        Hello Gentlemen,
        Reserve officers would have a gray secondary underlay. These boards are for regular service officers.
        Thank you,

              A later war reserve unit like this, which was to all intents and purposes a field unit included officers of various career paths, regular and reservist just as field unit were largely made up of reserve officers. R.G.J.R.139 belonged to 188 Reserve Gebirgs Division and served in North Italy fighting partisans.

                Hi Curtiss,

                I did not know that either.
                Thanks for making that clear.
                How would these kind of boards look like then?
                Any examples would be nice.

                Kind regards,

                    So Simon, are yours like the reserve ones or are these the regular 139ths?
                    Those are some nice looking boards as well.

                    Kind regards,
