    Default Two new discs

    Guys,

    Found today.

    Unsure of the medic abreviation, but may be Luneburg Luft Gau Kommando 11?

    Like the blood group stamp on the engineer disc on the reverse?

    That's all I could come up with too Jock- Sa. Komp. is Sanitäts-Kompanie, L.G.K. XI is Luftgau-Kommando XI and Lüneburg was in Luftgau XI, and I can't find another meaning for the abbreviation 'Lbg'; its position suggests it belongs to the specific unit, thus it seems to be Sanitäts-Kompanie-Lüneburg (of) Luftgau-Kommando XI, which could be reasonable since LGK XI was based in Hannover, not Lüneburg. I've never heard of such a unit, but that's what the disc reads...

    That Pionier one is strange though- the initial bit is contradictory: one was either in the 1. Kompanie or the Stammkompanie, not both. PEB 7 didn't have multiple Stammkompanien. And the 'wear' on the Halsschnur holes on the back looks filed- it's way sharper than makes sense for a fibre cord to have worn on aluminum over a long period of time- are you sure this one's real?
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Matt,

    I will take it on your advice, if its bent no problem, no great loss. As always cheap and cheerful.

    Is the bloodgroup thing new to you?

    Well it's not common, but not super-rare either- I have a couple of discs with that 'Blutgruppe' stamp myself. That's the bit that looks real, so if anything this could be an original blank with that mark already on, but that someone put the unit and blood group letter on later. Of course it may be real too- nothing else but the Kompanie discrepancy is wrong with it...

    Matt,

    Is the font OK?

    Would they ever go below Coy designation?

    If this were to be read,would it be, First Platoon, HQ Coy?

    I googled the exact desigantion and it took me to a war graves enquiry where they appear to list all the soldiers by disc buried in a particular area, One of them has this 1./ Stkp for an infantry unit. I will try and find it again and copy the address thing, It just made me wonder if some of the support HQs ever opperated independant pl level subunits? Likely not but I can send you the disc for inspection if you want?

    Not that I've ever seen- the Zug only appears in the case of very specialist units that are that size so far as I know. It's possible this means 1. Zug, Stammkompanie etc. but that'd be very atypical. If there are other units with this same designation that demonstrably existed, that's important- the major listings don't mention anything so that's what leaves the marking looking very 'incorrect'. The font isn't anything obviously weird, but those 'wear' marks on the back really are strange- it was that combined with the text that had me wondering.

    I personally, is the first time I've seen printed on a Erkennungsmarke, the word "Blutgruppe." This is curious
