    This one may take some research...

    To what DAK unit did Vigo Treiber belong?

    Vigo Treiber was the figure that came with the Zundapp KS-750 Motorcycle with Sidecar from DXPO 05.

    A hint, Vigo was based in Tunisia and his shoulder insignia is attached.

    Ding, ding, ding... Ultsterman gets it on the first try.

    Sonderverband 288, Rommel's Special Services Unit. It was a light mechanized panzer unit as part of Panzerarmee Afrika.

    I discovered this when researching how to wear the Palm/Rising Sun "Orientkorps" sleeve patch that came with Vigo. The patch was worn by both Sonderverband 288 and Sonderverband 287, but it was 288 that saw action in Tunisia (Vigo's location).

    The 288 was also known as Combat Group Menton, or Kampfgruppe Menton, named after its commander.

    Well met, mate! Now you have a go.

    yup, googled it and found this, pretty amazing piece of history



    Voytek the 'soldier bear' was a secret weapon used by the Polish troops in World War II


    Like any soldier, he loved to relax with a cigarette and a bottle of beer when out of the firing line.

    But in the heat of battle, he became an inspiring figure - bravely passing ammunition along to supply the guns.

    All the men in the Second Polish Transport Company agreed that the recruit they called Voytek was the perfect comrade.

    As for Voytek, he was just happy to be part of the unit... ever ready to lend a helping paw.

    The 250lb brown bear, standing more than 6ft tall, was possibly the most remarkable combatant of the Second World War, seeing action amid the hell of Monte Cassino in Italy.

    After the war, he and his fellow troops were billeted in Scotland and he lived out his days in Edinburgh Zoo, dying in 1963.

    This should be an easy one....

    What US Army helicopter pilot stationed in Germany had his request to go to Vietnam denied and instead was offered a teaching position in English literature at the USMA at West Point. He eventually declined the offer to teach at the USMA, resigned his commission and turned instead to a career in entertainment?
