    How many generals do you think there were in an SS PzGrn Regiment? ;)

    "That is awesome!" Oh brother :rolleyes:

    Ah, I've read it bleedin' wrong haven't I - that's a tag from his regiment, not his tag.
    Curses - back to the drawing board.
    Apologies for my hubristic dimness.

    The more I read, in books and websites, the more I think they were absolutely standard, excepting that a General might have them in a slightly nicer case.
    Where's Croonaert when you need him, he knows about this stuff.

    Adam..I posted a page from a BEF diary on German ID tags on here. Dave also commented on them in some detail.

    I wasn't criticising you, I know as much about the details on the sewing thread on Himmler's lingerie as Joe (or Josephine) Bloggs. I was manifesting my wonder at the, what, adulation shown on that place about an indeterminate piece of militaria, W-SS of course ;) My apologies for poor expression.

    I have to fish up a certain article in a Military Modelling from the 70s about this matter and scan it for the forum :)
