Don't think so Billy, Sawicki does not depict one, nor for when it was around in the 50s either, in the 50s it might of been a paper unit.

Well this bites, this was a earlier topic about a 771st Tk Bn grouping, maybe we could of seen if they had one, albeit an unauthorized locally approved on, but it all deleted photobuckets. Tried grabbing one of the urls, but no dice.

Someone will probably have a photo to post.

I was looking on the ASMIC page to see if there is an adoption date, none listed as we see.
