Re: Can anyone ID this unique patch?

The Scorpion insignia was the unofficial badge of the 1st Company of the Fallschirmjäger-Lehr-Bataillon "von der Heydte", which formed part of the Fallschirmjäger-Brigade "Ramcke".

The 2nd Company used a cross on a rectangular patch and the 3rd Company a sun on a square patch. I am not aware of a badge for the 4th Company.

Anyone who is interested in this topic should get Edgar Alcidi's book.
