I know it sounds a bit OCD, but it drives me nuts when I can't remember/find a reference.....
So, for anyone interested, I've dug through my old copies of Armes & Militaria magazine to find the 'MP44 in Normandy' pic......and it's in issue #203, June 2002. The article concerns the 2.Panzer Division in Normandy, and shows the entire sequence of PK photographs taken on 10th June 1944. Two soldiers in the column foot-slogging toward the front are identified as carrying MP43/44 rifles. Even if you can't speak French, it's worth a look - the article is 30 pages long and minutely describes all the weapons and equipment shown in the photos.
Back to the subject of the thread....great relic !
Just thought I'd update this thread a bit. The stg44 now has a new owner, shipping to the UK went without a hitch and I've already got a replacement on the wall, in from Berlin
Would you be interested to sell and ship it to Canada?
