BotB photos — which unit do they belong too?

Post by Geoffrey Cooke » 26 Jul 2022 23:41

All of these are from Bergström’s Ardennes book—they appear to be a series taken of the same unit. I’d assume the Führer Begeleit Brigade based on where he uses them but I’m not sure. Does anyone know where these were taken and which unit?

Unfortunately I can't help you, but excellent photos! I've never seen any of those before.
He who lives by the sword, should train with it frequently.

That’s ok. They are indeed excellent photos.

Another reason why I assumed they were FEB troops was their helmet covers: being a Großdeutschland spin-off unit, my understanding is that they had a plethora of Grey and Splinter helmet covers compared to other German units. But I might be wrong.

I guess the Helmet covers could also indicate Panzer Lehr or the Führer-Grenadier-Brigade now that I think about it.
