    Default Heer D&C 42 - Help Please

    Over the years I've acquired a bunch of buckles here and and there, usually as part of large groups of items. Although, I do remember reading a thread or post that described the significance of the letters scratched into the buckle face a while back, I can't seem to locate it or remember exactly what it is, any help is greatly appreciated. The tab is dated 1940.

    Hi John, nice buckle and a D&C buckle is steel is hard to get hold of, they come up for sale that often, I have only seen a handful of these buckles to be honest. Not got a clue what the lettering is! Here is another for comparison. Nice buckle mate, not in the best of condition but hard to get hold of

    Thanks Ben, I remember seeing something similar regarding the letters. It was attributed to either a resistance group or a particular army unit. I thought I saved the info, but it escapes me at the moment.

    From the internet....

    Ceux de la Résistance" (CDLR) was a French resistance movement during the German occupation of France in World War II.
    At first, the members of CDLR distributed copies of the underground newspaper Combat in the north zone of France which was directly occupied by the Germans. After several leaders of the group were arrested in 1942, Jacques Lecompte-Boinet relaunched the network and became its leader in early 1943 with the help of Pierre Arrighi, a law student, and Jean de Voguë, who was occupied with intelligence-gathering.
    On August 19, 1944 the CDLR movement received orders to depose of the mayor of Neuilly-sur-Seine in Paris, Max Roger.
    CDLR recruited mostly among reserve officers, engineers and industrialists. It specialised in propaganda, intelligence-gathering, and active resistance such as assisting in Allied airdrops, taking care of shot down pilots, and running arms depots.
    From its creation, the leaders of the CDLR movement decided to have a strictly apolitical manner in dealing with its resistance against the occupation.
