    The highly decorated Wehrmacht tank officer is Hermann von Oppeln-Bronikowski. The SA member is Kronprinz Wilhelm von Preußen. The "Hussar" is his sister, Victoria Luise Prinzessin von Preussen, wearing the uniform of her 2. Leib-Husaren-Regiment.
    Chapeau!

    That is the very obscure German weapon 'Die Ananas Granaten Werfer.'
    Multiple captured Allied 'pineapple grenades' were tied to a pole.
    The idea was to shove the pole into an enemy fortification through the slit observation holes in the concrete.
    It was a horrible fiasco, because as the soldier hurridly yanked the pin on grenade after grenade prior to deployment of the weapon, the following would happen; when the soldier yanked the pin on the last grenade at the bottom of the pole, the fuze would have run out on the first grenade, that he yanked the pin on at the top of the 'Granaten Werfer.'
    True story!

    Damn, that could have been fixed by pulling strings through the pins and tying them all to one string, and when you would pull the one string, all the pins would be pulled. But I think they did not have time to think about that.

    I dont doubt the truth of the story behind the Grenade pole, but I cant see how the soldier would even get half way down the pole, not with the fuze delay on pinapple grenades, it seems to me a very heath robinson contraption which was a suicide mission from the start

    He does look to be saying " Why is it always my turn...." in the photo.

    Alright, here goes. A model kit of a rather bizarre vehicle. Despite its almost "retro-sci-fi" look, this really existed. What is it and where can you see an original?
