Great Grandfather’s unit tag

Post by Ryanhill » 04 Jul 2021 19:48

Hello,

According to my Aunt, the tag in the attached picture is my Great Grandfather’s unit tag. I can’t read German and have no expertise in this area to interpret the tag. Can anybody help or offer advice?

Thanks

:welcome:
Looks like unit was: Flak-Ersatz-Abteilung 7.
It was a Luftwaffe ground unit, perhaps you might get more info in Luftwaffe section of this Forum or other Luftwaffe forums.

Stab und Nachrichten Batterie, or well Stamm und Nachricten Batterie ?

It reads ; Flak-Ersatz-Abteilung. 7 ( Air defense unit replacement, Battalion. 7 )
