Moved to the Finnish forum!
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
Beautiful post, the best picture of this rare order I've seen. Thanks, it's part of my virtual collection now!
Thank you Adrian and sorry for the misplacement.
Nice that you like it, here is another high-resolution photo of the order. I also have even a better one but I need to dig it up from my HDD first.
