    Default Help with Unit Marking on Luftwaffe Dagger

    Hello, all!

    My good buddy Josh just picked up a 1st pattern Luftwaffe Dagger with "L.P.P. 15" engraved on the scabbard throat and cross guard.

    Could anyone help us nail down exactly what "L.P.P. 15" means? A unit abbreviation, perhaps?

    I have no idea Joe, but I have seen the L.P.P. on only the first pattern Luft.

    I believe it is Luftwaffen-Pionier-Park..which would be a supply dump or depot ?

    Thanks Joe .... for posting the pics for me! We are speculating that it is a supply unit? If anyone can provide any more info that would be great!
