Recommended Posts

I picked this up for a $1 at a flea market. Does anyone have an idea as to what unit the DI is for?

Wow thought this would be a piece of cake.

 

Clearly it's for a TC unit, designator 8, but getting no hits for a TC unit with a 8, that's neither a 8th Trans Grp, a 8th Trans Bn, or a 8th Trans Co in USAEUER.

It is the 8th Transportation Traffic Regulation Group, part of the USAREUR Transportation Center Rheinau. Rheinau was part of the Heidelberg Military Post. The 8th TTRG has been deactivated in Dezember '63.

Click for additional photos of the 8th group under the year 1954.

Fantastic job.

 

Here's the unit again, strange these pages didn't come up back in July when I researched this site, maybe they were added recently.
