    Default Waffen SS unit info request

    Iíve recently purchased a SS erkennungsmarke and can find very little info about the unit. Any help would be appreciated. The unit is 2nd Company, SS Kraftfahr Abteilung 2. I know itís a transportation unit, but is it part of a larger unit, like a known SS division? I thank you for your time.

    Hi Airdale,
    Kraftfahr Ersatz Abteilung was formed in 1941 in Berlin Lichterfelde as an extension of the original units Kraftfahr Ersatz Kompanie. As such it was within the SS Liebstandarte barracks was not part of the LSAAH per say which was your original question. In the spring of 1943, the section was moved to Weimar-Buchenwald. From 1st May 1943, Kraftfahr Ersatz Abteilung was subsequently renamed Kraftfahr Ausbildungs und Ersatz Abteilung. On August 15, 1944, the Kraftfahr Ausbildungs und Ersatz Abteilung was renamed and extended to the Kraftfahr Ausbildungs und Ersatz Regiment. This was the last unit renaming.
