    I thought this was an interesting early war original photo I purchased some time ago. Looks like a machine gun training session with 3 gunners in camo cover helmets . I can't read German so I was hoping I might find a translator on the forum to help out.

    cheers, Keith

    Very interesting photo , looks like they are training off the Lafette tripod in SF Fire , the helmet covers are very unusual for that period !

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
