Unknown flak unit

Post by guidosam » 18 Jun 2021 18:20

Hello everybody,

Rummaging through Bundesarchive´s image library, I found several pictures of 8,8cm flak guns being unloaded in North Africa. I presume they belong to a Luftwaffe unit (I believe all flak units belonged to the Luftwaffe) but I can´t identify the particular unit. I attach a detail of one of the photographs that shows the unit symbol, can someone shed some light on it?

Thanks a lot!
