Just thought I would post a link to a relic and re-enactment site I just stumbled over. It is in french but has pics and is easy to navigate for the non-french speakers.
I found the link in a great book that I just bought called "Rückmarsch! The German retreat From Normandy" by famed Jean Paul Pallud. I am sure that those of you who has read as many examples of the "After The Battle" magazines as I, will know of Pallud as he has been the author and coworker on several "Then and Now" articles. I can not reccomend "After the Battle" enough.
Bienvenue chez Vexin Histoire vivante
Random pics from the site:
Part from Tiger
Ground dug Browning
Pistole 08 and holster. What a find - be still my beating heart!
Parts of a Messerschmitt Bf109. Pilot was named Gutmann. Note armament.
Mercedes dragged from river.
Para. At first I thought that he had equipped himself with a private purchase WWI knuskleduster knife, but at closer examination, I think that it is just plain brass knuckles on the left shoulder harness.
