SS Totenkopf - Auto Union Horch 930

Post by Gunther » Tue Oct 26, 2010 2:33 pm

Hello!

I recently found out that my grandfather drove a Horch 930 whilst serving in the Totenkopf Division - can anyone tell me what these were used for or any more about them, looks like a staff car to me but I am sure it was used for many tasks throughout his time with the division 1939-42.

Many thanks!
Gunther

Here's a photo of the vehicle in use by the TK Division.

hi Gunther,
I don't know if the photo is specifically your grandfathers vehicle. What I can tell you, if my sources are correct, is that the pictured Horch is from the 12th company of the Totenkopf infantry.
