Knowing the old German saying, "Ordnung muss sein!" (There must be order!) I would guess that the
Feldgendarmerie had a number of signals that were used with the hand held traffic paddles. Any ideas
where I might find information on the proper traffic signals used by the German WW2 Military Police
with paddles like these? I have attempted a number of web searches and not found anything.

Could these hand signals also be used with a traffic wand?

Only down side to this, is that your gona be the only one who knows what your doing, everyone one else will think your just waving your stick again :lol: Its noce to know these, but generaly when I have to use my wand, its for coralling and controlling the public, so I just shout in english and tell em to move or stand back so they dont get run over by a tank etc (you still get the odd idiot that ignores you then suddenly realises why everyone else had stopped) :P
