Interesting - looks like a Prinz Eugen issued tag , but " Partisan Jäger " is unusual - can I ask where you got it ?

Thanks for the swift reply , it would be nice to be able to compare it to some others from 7e SS Freiwilligen Division " Prinz Eugen " .

Two more photos from Kaltenegger's book, in which no unit information is given.
If these were dated, it could be easier to determine if the men in question were from the 7th or 13th.
