  4. Latest addition to my collection. An Oberfeldwebel with what looks like Obermechaniker cyphers on his shoulder straps. Medal bar L- R: Hindenberg Cross for Non-combatants, Silesian Eagle II Class Medal, 8 Year Long Service Award, 4 Year Long Service Award. DRL badge under medal bar and finally Silesian Eagle Ist Class Medal at bottom. Cheers, Larry
  5. Pre-1939 Coastal Artillery Oberfeldwebel with with "O" (Ostsee) cypher on his shoulder board. Cheers, Larry
  6. Just picked up this nice Torpedo Mechanic patch in wear portrait. Cheers, Larry
  7. Hi, I can not find any mention of MN together with the Nachschub or any other tactical symbol. M on its own usually means Munitions or Marine (not applicable in your photo). N usually means Nachrichten (I think also not applicable in your photo) or in some cases Nachschub. I think your photo is early war or earlier. All are wearing branch soutaches on their caps. Wearing of soutaches was banned from mid-1942 and while it was worn contrary to regulations throughout the war it's highly unlikely all the men in the photo would be wearing them at the same time. Cheers, Larry
  8. Hi, The plate can be found here: http://www.niehorster.org/011_germany/symbols/_symbols_43.html Cheers, Larry
  9. My pleasure. Here is the Nachschub/Supply Trains symbol. The men in the photo are rear echelon troops and older men were often used in this role. Cheers, Larry
  10. It looks like the Nachschubtruppen (Supply Column) symbol. The M and N above is unusual. A single M usually denotes Munitions while a single N denotes Nachschub. A possible interpretation could be Munitions Nachschub or Munitions Supply Column. Cheers, Larry
