Yeah, tank units used the Totenkopf on their collar patches (thingie ^^) but instead of having only one, like the Totenkopf guys had, they had two. That actually led to some confusion, when angry Russian soldiers rounded up captured Panzer crew men and thought they were SS guys. They were shot then. Not quite sure if that story is true or not, though.
Well, I hope Mudra comes back here, soon and he can answer my question. I´m not sure if really ALL SS soldiers used the Totenkopf..

All Waffen SS headgear (bar steel helmets) had a totenkopf on them.


Anyway my pic of the day:

A Cromwell VI captured at Villers-Bocage is driven off by its new owners.

Soldier with my favourite pistol, the P08 aka "Luger". Waffen SS or Wehrmacht? My knowledge about the different camo schemes and their usage is unfortunately limited. (I love this forum! It succesfully stopped me from learning for my history exams ^^)
And so he spoke, and so he spoke, that lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o'er his hall, with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.

Usually the gunner assistant was facing the other way around, holding the bipod with both hands.
