    Default Hilfswachmannschaften -Auxiliary guards.

    Anyone have any ideas on this tag? It is supposed to be for Hilfswachmannschaften -Auxiliary guards (HIWA).

    The photo is not great but it is all I have at the moment.

    I'd think since the proper field unit 1./ J.R. 318 is there that it's supposed to be 'HIWI' and that maybe it was made by a Russian who simply made a mistake... or it was made by a faker who didn't know what he was doing LOL
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    I did some research and the J.R. 318 was part of the 23rd security division in the Ukraine, and it had Hilfswachmannschaften as part of the division. I think it is correct.
