Krad Licence Plate Red Stamps - Advice Please

Post by Stefan1944 »

Can anyone confirm the correct Krad licence plate Red Stamp details and what they have written on them please.

I'm interested for my BMW R71 Replica Krad combo project for both LSSAH and WH (DAK & GD) plates - infantry or Recon.

I've looked at all the other Pst Licence Plate posts which are very useful and also tried various web searches - however the Licence Plate Red Stamp detail is very vague....

Also who supplies them...

Thanks....

It wasn't a feldpost stamp added to the reg plate but a branch of service stamp e.g "Wehrmacht - Heer", or "Wehrmacht - Luftwaffe" etc. The stamps were applied the when the car was first registered by the corresponding Luftgaukommando (LW vehicles) or Wehrkreiskommando (Wehrmacht Heer vehicles).

7- The stamps are being provided by services (Dienststellen) that have a responsible technical official as well as by Repair Parks of army field supply groups and/or LW liaison officers with the Army HKP (HeeresKraftfahrpark). The units that do not dispose of those stamps have to address themselves to the nearest service where a registration stamp is available. (Aerodrome district, Flak regiments, motorized Flak Abtlng, motorized air signal units and the aforementioned Dienstellen)
