    Just wondering who used the stylised chamois first, 5th Gebirgsjäger Division or
    Kitzbühel ?
    Did the 5th Gebirgsjäger use the Kitzbühel logo or was that designed post war ?

    5.Gebirgs-Division referred to it as the 'Kitzbüheler 'Gamsbock'' so it looks like they copied it from Kitzbühel.

    Brilliant.
    Honestly didn't think I'd get an answer.
    Cheers.

    Went off on a tangent earlier.
    Looked at the website of the hotel in the 1938 photo.
    Read up on the history of it.

    Here are the 2 Waltls listed here.
    Kitzbühel (2. Weltkrieg), Bezirk Kitzbühel, Tirol, Österreich

    Both killed in Russia in 1942.
