Pz.Rgt.3 emblems.....

Post by Christoph Awender » 30 Jul 2002 08:38

Hello!

On this photo elements of Pz.Rgt.3 assemble for a parade in Athens 1941. The tank in the front from 1.Kompanie has the Kreuz-emblem and the Pz.IIIF with G commander-cupola has the Caro-emblem.

Despite all my researches in the past these emblems are new to me :oops: so has anyone informations when introduced which companies had which emblems etc....

Hi Christoph

What do you mean by CARO emblem??

I regonise the symbols as being from playing cards-spades and clubs!

Hello Tom!

Thanks for the link but I know these 15.Pz.Div. emblems. I have them on my UNKNOWN EMBLEMS section on my site. This was why I wondered that Pz.Rgt.3 used this system before... never saw it.
