pic of truck with sloping grill guard,film 4, I think is a Steyr 640/643 ambulance or command car.

pic of truck, Wh 54033 film 4 is I believe a Krupp L2H143.

pic of truck, with guy in goggles on helmet, film 4 could be either Horch or Opel Kfz.15

Pic of halftrack with front wheels 'airborne', is Sd.Kfz.6 5 ton Bussing-NAG

 

Will have a look at the other clips soon-ish.

 

Great set, nice find. :-)

The symbol on the lead Schwimmwagen isn't LSSAH, that was shield shaped. Assuming it is SS, I am afraid my memory of div signs is long gone. I was going to suggest Wiking but I am sure they were in Russia in 1942 and on second thoughts wasn't their badge a circular swastika? No good. Had to Google it. Got the Wiking badge right.

No I have better things to do (like pretend to work).

No, Wiki gave me all the SS divisional badges and it isn't there.

Isnt that a Tac sign on the Lead Veh, & not a regimental Unit Insignia.

I THINK it's a Recce Tac sign.

Might be wrong...................:coffee:
