Black Panzer Wrap

Article about: Pics of the chevron. It appears that the inner one is from a different maker compared to the outer tress. Maybe due to a later promotion?

    Hi Ben, the yellow braid loops will be for Kompanie designation. This was an unofficial practise used by many units, not just Panzer.

    Enclosed is a pic of a shoulder strap from my collection.

    Use of this was not exclusive to the Heer: even the British Army's 1st battl, The Border Regt did it. Just a quick and easy way to show who was who and it helped build esprit de coprs.

    Hi Chris, well done on your purchase!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Andreas thanks for posting your opa's photo.
    Have we talked about him in the "giantic" thread in the past?

    I have a weak memory, as you already know, but i remember that we have a photo of the same French knocked out tank just in different angle. Your grandpa had taken that picture so maybe we talked more about him back then?

    Thanks for your interest. Please see this thread for more information and photographs:

    (The photos of the knocked-out French tank mentioned by Chris are not in that thread, however, but in the "new photo pick-up" one; I'd have to search for those.)
