MOB Coded disk information please
I have the opportunity to own the following coded disk and this is what I am being told about it, can anyone verify this information?
2. Staffel Nahaufklärungsgruppe 2
The tag was found near Kamenets-Podolsky, Ukraine. This unit based
there in March 1944.

Yup, that's what I have too. Originally the number was 5. (H)/ Aufklärungsgruppe 12, which was re-designated 2./ NA Gruppe 2 in March 1943. The Lexikon reports 5. (H)/ Aufklärungsgruppe 12 as having been destroyed at Stalingrad, but that also (parts?) of it went to form 2./ NA Gruppe 2; destruction and 're-issue' of the number makes sense since they couldn't have two units with the same number, so one had to be gone already.
Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
Thanks Matt! it is nice to get confirmation on one of these.
