Hi Gents, The Prussian

i was looking up a few things today so kept an eye out for yours... I see yours as an X in a rectangle? The bottom half is obscured but I didn't find anything with a matching top half that wasn't a complete X.

having said that...

nothing quite matched your sign, if an X, either.

there are only a few close to matching. I wonder how strictly the designs were adhered to?

could it be this without the 'wheels'?


Doubt this one.


This one is trapezoid shaped and late war. Your pic looks earlier to me? 


Lastly. Crude version of this? Various motorbike units used varieties of an 'X' inside a circle.

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.

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.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
