SS-Aufklärungs-Abteilung 2

Post by Blanusa » 13 Nov 2021 18:59

Hello,

The attached crop from a photograph, showing license plate number 6014, is that of a motorcycle with sidecar that belonged to the 2./SS-VT-Aufklärungs-Abteilung. The sidecar carries an interesting insignia, that I have previously not seen with this unit and is visible on several vehicles. It looks like the hilt of a sword (??) and the number 2 within a square. Has anyone seen this insignia before? The soldier depicted in the last image belonged to this unit and was later transferred to division Wiking.


Best regards

Hello again,

Sorry for the poor quality, but I'm not really that great in painting and drawing. This is what I believe the insignia looks like and please pay no attention to the colours of my drawing, just used some that seemed nice to my eyes.


Best regards
