    Kevin, if you don't mind me asking would you be kind enough to post the images also on our Forum for reference? It is sad that this practive exist and they are ruining the hobby. Between us, I never liked Fotobethge, I don't know if they did the faking but regarding photographs (from the 12. SS that they once listed) I learned not to trust them.
  5. Great and interesting set you've shown us, Tony ! Thanks for sharing.

  12. I asked close-ups of the divisional patches. Thanks all.
  13. I just bought the book "The Black Bull - From Normandy to the Baltic with the 11th Armoured Division" and regarding to the Antwerp sector, I'm looking for units that fought there. I already find a few and I'm asking for your help to know which badges I need to look for precisely (and fit the time frame September 1944). I'm still getting used to the acronyms. Units: 8th RB, 3rd Mons, 4th KSLI, 2nd Fife and Forfardshire. Thanks in advance !
