    I have this disk that I believe is:

    Dulag. "transit camp for prisoners of war" or Durchgangslager.

    Anyone have any idea what G Limburg stands for?

    Limburg was one of the largest POW camp in Germany during WWII. Stalag 12A held something in the order of more than 15,000 prisoners when liberated. No clue on the meaning of the "G",however. Perhaps it means "Gefangen" or "captured"?

    I was able to find that there existed a "G" and an "H" Transit camp at Limburg. So this was a guards tag for transit camp "G" I guess. I cannot find any mention of A thru F anywhere. Thanks for your help!

    "G" does not mean anything; there were consecutively designated Dulags "A" through "L".

    For a list, see:

    HPL once again you show your knowledge! Usually I am proficient with the Lexikon but not on this one. Thanks again!
