Original German WWII State Service Flag Signed by 92nd Signal Battalion - Liberation of Dachau

Item Description

Original Item: One-of-a-kind. This an excellent condition example of a WW2 German State Service flag, captured during WWII by members of General George Patton's Third Army, 92nd Signal Battalion. Amazingly in a book entitled "Where the Birds Never Sing," Jack Sacco gives a first-hand account of the liberation of CC Camp, as experienced by his father, Joe Sacco, who was a 20-year-old soldier from Alabama with the 92nd Signal Battalion of General George Patton's Third Army. Joe Sacco and several other men in the 92nd Signal Battalion were among the first 250 soldiers on the scene at the liberation of CC Camp on April 29, 1945.

The flag is marked in various inks and handwriting as follows:

Through research we have been able to make a positive match that Albert C Spagnoletti was a member of the 92nd Signal Battalion as it is mentioned in his obituary from 2009 which can be found at this link. We have also matched many other members who can be found at this link.

There is no way to know if this flag had anything to do with the Liberation of CC Camp, however the the 92nd Signal Battalion was a small force of only 71 members, the fact that 33 members of it signed this flag makes for pretty good odds that some of them would have been at the prison camp on April 29, 1945. Certainly its worth reading the book "Where the Birds Never Sing" to find out!

The flag has clear makers marks on the canvas hoist, halyard loops on each side of the hoist, and the original steel clasps for hanging on a pole or building. The flag is dyed, and still retains excellent color.  The flag measures 150cm x 230cm and is nicely maker marked Küpper & Rudolph / KÖLN  and  REISS-SCHUTZ / D. R. G. M., indicating that the design of the flag hoist was registered with the German Trademark office.

Overall a fascinating captured flag signed by Liberators of the CC Camp Prison camp!
