    "P" for Panzerjager: hence the pink waffenfarbe.

    Interesting he has used Luftwaffe pattern NCO's tresse. Not unknown but a talking point.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Is it possible it is from Hermann Goring panzer division?

    Doubtful, as they were not authorised to use the "P" cypher.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hard to tell true colour, but could it be for luft signals and someone has added the P cypher, maybe vet done?

    I think it is an honest shoulder board. The tress used was what was available at the time. I believe a common practice.
