Re: Totenkopf panzerjager dog tag

A picture of your tag would help, but if you can type exactly what you see on the tag from top to bottom that may help.

Indeed in the Totenkopf Panzerjäger Abteilung there were 3 companies.

Re: no one stop the spam ?

I sincerely hope that with a site rebuild being promised that the tidy up will also extend to the forum. Feldgrau desperately requires a reboot if it is to stay alive at all.

Good luck JPollar & the Mods!

Re: no one stop the spam ?

A great shame that the admin appears uninterested in the future of Feldgrau, and with the Wehrmacht awards forum appearing to be going the same way, constant problems with access - perhaps these places have run their course?

Re: no one stop the spam ?

Hi Prosper,
I agree, it is a great pity. and perhaps the silence from the owner tells us all we need to know about the future of the forum.

Best wishes my friend,

Re: no one stop the spam ?

I have considered volunteering us as admins Prosper, to try and purge the spammers but I sadly don't have so much time that I can dedicate it to the forum. Currently it is too easy for the spammers to gain membership of the forum, not sure why that is but if it continues then there is is nothing to ...

Re: Photos of the 225 ID - Russia 1942-1944 - Part 3

I'm just getting a bit fed up about the torrent of rubbish on here now. It appears John Howard is the only Mod left, I seriously wonder whether we are witnessing the final moments of a once great forum.

Re: no one stop the spam ?

Hello Simon: As you know these sites are only as good as the members who inhabit them. There has to be people to ask questions and more experienced members to answer them. And a "thank you" to those who help should be mandatory. You and Prosper and Tigre, to name a few are keeping things going; we ...

Re: Panzer Assault Badge

If he was serving as motorised infantry then a bronze version of the Infanterie Sturmabzeichen. If armoured crew member then Panzerkampfabzeichen.
