    Greetings from Germany!

    Hello all,

    I have recently taken over my father's Jeep. To start with a friend and me drove all the way from Munich to Düsseldorf (near where I live) over the course of 3 days, that's about 850 kilometers on the route that we took - quite a trip with some nice stops (like e.g the bridge at Remagen). But that is a different story.

    My Jeep was built in 1942 and is number 2041149 S.
    Its unit registry is "2 88 F HQ 25". And that is what really puzzles me.
    In my understanding that means: 2nd Infantry Division, 88th Field Artillery, HQ section, 25th vehicle". From my initial research the 2nd infantry division was active in the ETO, whereas the 88th Field Artillery was a Phillipine unit and not part of the 2nd Inf Div, ever.
    Anybody got any insights or ideas?

    Thanks all.
    Can post some pics from the trip if there is interest. I'll probably start a separate thread for that though.

    Great road trip!

    I'll see if I can get a chance to find the information to where your Jeep served exactly.

    That would be fabulous as that number is a real conundrum to me. If it actually is real...

    I did some Google searches that yielded a lead, but it didn't pan out well. I haven't given up, just haven't had a chance to dig more. More to follow.

    Thanks, appreciated!

    Here is a pic of the jeep and a friend of mine in front of the remains of the Remagen bridge, to keep up the motivation ;-)
