    Hi William, I cannot imagine that. It does not make sense.

    You are either Flak or a tank hunter. I cannot see how you can be both.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I couldn't figure it either. I was looking at abit of trench art and it looked too new and had this nonsensical inscription on it. Just more fake rubbish, I guess. Phony trench art...who ever would have thought it 50 years ago...

    Some Pz.Jäger units did have their own Flak units. Here is an excerpt from the Lexicon entry for Pz.Jäger-Abt 7...
    Panzerjäger-Abteilung 7 umbenannt. Am 19. Februar 1941 wurde die 3. Kompanie durch die 2.(Pz.J.Abt. 215 ersetzt, außerdem wurde eine neue 4. Kompanie mit 3,7-cm Flak gebildet.

    Now that I can understand as a separate Kompanie.

    Cheers, Ade.

    According to Lexikon it was 4.(Fla.)Kompanie rather than the 3rd.

    Bottom line...anything engraved with "3./Fla. Pz. Jg. Abtl.7" is still Bogus then...

    If it is written like that then I would say quite probably.
