    Hello,

    You're almost right but please find some small corrections.

    First belonged to:
    3. J. R. ...6 = 3. (Kompanie) Infanterie-Regiment ...6 - 3rd Coy/ ...6th Infantry Regiment

    Second:
    3 KW. TRANSP. ABT. ZBV. 979 = 3 (Kompanie) Kraftwagen-Transport-Abteilung zur besonderen Verwendung 979 - 3rd Coy/ 979th Vehicle Transportation Detachment for Special Purpose

    AMAZING! Thank you!
    I've gotta start researching these soon. As Eric stated, my collection is growing and I'd like to know as much as I can about them.

    Correct- because an old form of the capital letter 'I' looked very much like a 'J', the Germans very often used a capital 'J' stamp as an 'I' on Erkennungmsarken; so in nearly any case where you find one, read it as an 'I'. When it is truly a 'J', it's not generally used as a single letter abbreviation or it'd be confusing, so for words like 'Jäger', they usually use a longer abbreviation like 'Jäg.'; In cases where it's more obvious what letter it really is such as in the term 'Panzer-Jäger', you can find 'Pz. J.', for example- because there wasn't a formal unit title 'Panzer-Infanterie', there could be no obvious confusion.

    In cases where there are two reasonable possibilities, the unit number usually becomes the clarifying element- in the case of your disc Pwny it wouldn't be because although there were I think fewer than 10 'Jäger-Regimenter', one was numbered '56' so unless you could discern what the first number was, it'd be left unclear. Except that 'J. R.' is defintiely 'Infanterie-Regiment' and never have I seen it also used as 'Jäger-Regiment'.

    A few things I can tell you about that Infanterie disc right off the bat are that it was issued prior to the war, or right at the beginning, because it is the field unit and has a low serial number, and the presence of a blood group letter means the man was serving for at least two years because they are not thought to have been put on discs until mid-1941.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
