Here is war uniform board I've picked up.

I'm told it is for a sound ranging unit. Does anyone know if the unit number has any relationship to an Artillery regiment or if they were just assigned numbers as raised?

Thank you, but was this unit part of that regiment?

I don't think so. Tony's section on cartidge casings has reprinted an article by Mr. Chip Minx on the ranging troops at the bottom. It is a good explaination.

While you are there, have a look at the page with Tony' little dog on top of huge parcels. It is hilarious. :lol: She is very cute.

The Schallmeßtruppen were not affiliated with any regiment; they were directly subordinated to Army Groups, Armies or Army Detachments. Schallmeßtrupp 70 served under command of 8., 6. Armee and Armee-Abteilung C.
