    WWII: German camera captures Nazi troops at rest - BBC News

    Looks like a Voigtländer Bessa? Shame they don't say a bit more about the camera, but a great story with pics.

    Voigtländer (German pronunciation: [ˈfoːktlɛndɐ]) is an optical company founded by Johann Christoph Voigtländer (de) in Vienna in 1756 and is thus the oldest name in cameras.

    They all look like Nazi troops to me with the exception of the British soldiers.
    The Nazi adlers on the right breast of their tunics lead me to believe this.

    A small correction here: they are actually KM Coastal Artillerymen. Points to note:

    Pointed ends to the shoulder straps

    Lower pockets to the tunics are not patch pockets, but are internal type with just an external flap.

    Feldmutze: in KM cut (like the style also used by the Waffen SS and Luftwaffe) which has no step down towards the front on the turn up like a Heer M34 cap.

    Cheers, Ade.
