unser Geschützwagen

Response to Sureley nothing complicated

There are many original experience reports written by German Officers in various Archives. While searching for information that might be added to the history we publish in Panzer Tracts one is often frustrated by the general description of vehicles used. Unless we had other evidence of the inventory of the unit the reports while interesting could not be used. The example that Andrew gave of how we refer to our “Car” or John’s “unser Panzer” are typical. I remember one report from a unit that we knew was equipped with Sd.Kfz.250 where the Officer kept referring to “unser Wagen”

My guess is that the guys using a “10.5cm le.F.H. 16 und 18/40 (Sf) auf Geschützwagen 39 H (f)" would simply refer to it as “unser Geschützwagen” they knew what type of gun was in the vehicle and did not care about the chassis as long as it kept running.
