Freikorps tank Flag And Pennant please identify
Permalink   


I have some Freikorps flags that some Freikorps collectors have confirmed maybe (He is pretty sure and a expert in his fields of collecting) are real.

Has anyone seen other photos of vehicles with these flags other than those I have provided and anybody have any information on Korting subordinates as

Korting had 3xxx's on his pennant. Any info is appreciated.  I can't attach photo's but would be glad to email and if anyone could post I would be grateful. Tom

My email is Tgnob@Hotmail.com Thanks!

Well ..... lets say: it is a minefield.

From the pictures I would say they look old. The letters "Kampfwagen" look good - could you please Show us detailed fotos?

But: the big flag compared to the first picture is totaly different. So I wouldn't bet on the writings on the back. It could be possible that one of the other tanks "weared" a similar flag with different skull, but as I own the same picture I can assure that the other 2 tanks on that picture wear flags without skulls.

btw: as far as I know the "xxx" is Theodor Larsen, not Hptm. Körting.

That is great! Theodor Larsen, would you know of a subordinate that may have used a wimple flag with the 2xx's on it? The photo of crew with flag was an example used to compare and I believe this may have been from a different unit. I do have an extensive photo file o 71 pictures of both flags, but I can't get it to download on this site (To large). If you would email me @ Tgnob@hotmail.com I would be glad to send the file to you for your examination. Here is the history of the flags.

1. Pennant- 8-1/4" hoist, 27-1/2" fly.
This pennant came in a collection of English & German WW1 memorabilia.
That is all on this flag.

2. Flag- 23-1/4" hoist, 34" fly.
This came from a collection just south of Berlin Neuendorf/Beelitz and
ephemera from 1919-1945. The ephemera I have not translated but looks to
be some member papers or work papers. I am told it is a Totenkopf Panzer Freikorp flag.
Made from cotton dated 1918 (pics.) and writing Kokampf, Lepzig SCH ABT 1.
My research led that this unit, in May 1919, subdued a communist riot
in Lepzig. (I could be wrong). If you could help me out on identifying or confirming authenticity,
with your experience, would be greatly appreciated. The tank photo is one I
found on the internet and display's a flag similar to mine. There is also a date of
1918 and a crown on the hoist, I believe to be a Berlin Manufacture mark.
I can send more photo's if needed. Thank you again and have
a good week !! Sincerely Tom Knoblich

You have probably realised that SCH ABT 1 is schwere Abteilung 1. I can't add any more to this discussion.

I don't know if these help or not or are even the same vehicle although they share the features and there's at least two of them

IIRC the last one is an Ehrhardt a/c on the Eastern Front or in Polish hands.

Hi, German Ehrhardt (named Upper Silesia-Alsace) in Polish hands during the Third Silesian Uprising in May 1921 year. The insurgents had 3 armored cars and 16 armoured trains. Yours.
