Hello- I have a question regarding the correct color for Dak soldiers in the 21 Panzer div, 104 Schützen regiment, from what I gather much like a motorized infantry/recon Unit using the Sd.kfz 251. Since they are part of a Panzer div, would they have the pink shoulder straps? From pics and other Docs, seems like the Dak used whatever they could find and that insignias/epaulettes may vary irregardless of unit..
Any thoughts?
Cheers
Fred

According the Bender book on the DAK published back in 1973 the piping on the shoulder straps
was grass-green for Armoured infantry (panzergrenadiers) and Golden-yellow for Reconnaissance units.
Some reconnaissance units also had a Gothic 'A' on the shoulder strap.
I don't think the colours of the piping would vary from the laid down standard for the Wehrmacht.
Whether or not tunics were inter-changed in the desert is quite probable.
Hope this helps
Geoff
