I'm not familiar with that tactical sign. Tactical signs on motorcycles were also painted on the fenders as well. I do agree the plate you have came off the back of the side car. I have seen this in period photos. I'm excited to these relics as they were from the battle of Demjansk pocket. Totenkopf fought to the death in that battle nearly losing 80% of its men. I respect them for that. Man, i'm just as excited as Doug was when he saw that mirror type SS decal!

Ah i remember know i think i tried to blag the TK off you but you'd already sold it , the white stripes probably indicate an Infanterie Unit !!

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

I don't know if it is a tactical sign ??
I'm pretty sure Dimas knows of the fendor that was found with the helmet hoard in 2006
it had a smaller TK stencil
Interesting. Can't wait to hear from Dimas. You say these items were recovered in 2006?
Hi. No my helmet, boots and TK were recovered about 10 years ago approx
The helmet hoard and fendor was in 2006 I believe
Dumas had several of the helmets for sale
But not from same area as my helmet, boots
Not sure where motorcycle sidecar was exactly found
Aha! I managed to locate a photo of one.

You need to look hard to see S A C ?? Then numbers underneath
Hardly make out the whats going on in the first pic. I do agree there are two different handwritings. Nevertheless, an interesting piece.
