    Joint Dutch - German Unit Insignia

    Post by AndrewA74 on Tue Mar 03, 2009 3:27 pm

    Hello,
    This is something I got from a friend, and the only explanation he had was that it was a joint Dutch-German unit, indicated by the two flags. It's very interesting, but I wish I could find out more about it. I figured the phrase was latin but communitate won't translate. Anyone have any ideas on it's origin? Thanks.

    Yup! The Germans have joint units with the Dutch and another one with the French (similar flag motif). Not a common thing to come upon.

    Just as a side note to that patch. I found a picture where a norwegian was wearing that patch.

    The moto words on the 1st German/Dutch Korp patch are in latin and goes for something like "Together we are strong"

    Best regards
