    Hello,
    I am buying this named lot to a Para and would like to know which unit he was with. I beleive it can be determined by matching the numbers up from the top of tag.The markings are 215967 and 2132 under that which i think maybe the soldiers number:-)

    i was always understood that the tags were to have unit affiliation,blood type and soldiers #...i dont think this is a para id tag,so i dont see how it could be attributable to a para,,,i could be wrong,,???

    Thanks,
    Yeah apparently the Luftwaffe tags were coded like this to avoid identity behind enemy lines etc.There are a few members on here that have a list of these numbers they can match up with a unit so heres hopeing.Better be a Para badge or i'm not buying

    215697 - this is coded mobilization number of:
    Fallschirmschule II located in Wittstock, so it's for sure parachutist ID tag.

    Some information about this school you can find in the following link:

    And that's not necessarily the unit he always served with, but likely just the unit he began in when he first became a Fallschirmjäger.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Have you any better photos of the disc Tom? Unfortunately being simply numbers, these LW coded discs are extremely difficult to authenticate- so do you have other reasons for believing the lot is as advertised? What about the cloth badge- have you confirmed it's real?

    Sorry Matt,
    I was sure i replied to your comment again.I never bought the Disc as it could'nt be confirmed but it was from a promonent seller in Germany but he sold the Para Badge that went with this lot so that went down bad.He offered to get it back again (not sure i'd trust it) so i would buy but i pulled out so no deal

    So he split the lot? Sad. Such people shouldn't be allowed to have nice things...
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
