German Military Abbreviations

During the filming of WW2 Treasure Hunters, this list isn’t something we needed to refer to very often! However, every now and again it does come in very useful, especially when trying to identify things like German dogtags or abbreviations in a soldiers record, or those in letters between military personnel.

The list itself is very comprehensive, but it does require a little bit of lateral thinking when trying to decipher German military abbreviations. Not everything is straightforward!

Anyway, the list itself is self-explanatory.

I do hope you find it useful.
