New Photo Pick-Ups - Please Share

Article about: Wish the picture was better but after looking through some books I'm now leaning to a Mauser Modle HSe da auto pistol. 1938 7.65mm in competing with the Walther PP. The wood grip lead me to

    Can anyone tell me what model sidecap this is?? It has buttons on the front
    It's the model 42 field cap for NCOs and men; developed after the experiences of the 1941/42 Winter Campaign.



    The turn-up flap could be unbottened, folded down and re-buttoned in front of the chin, covering the ears, back of the neck and mouth area. (Unlike the earlier model sidecap whose flap could only be pulled down to protect the ears.)

    This model was not too widely issued in the black tanker's version.

    Thank You very much Andreas! I have tried to find this model in other photos that I have and was unsuccessful. This was the main reason why I had purchased the photo. Thanks again....exactly what I was looking for!

    Yeah, HPL2008 has nailed it. I think the Germans copied the British Field Service Side Cap!!! The Brits weren't too keen on it & it didn't last too long in German service either. Here's a pic of my Grand Dad Gunner Frederick John Waldon 1618924 from 1940 when he was serving in the Royal Artillery.

    P.S. I've never seen a black M42 'in the flesh'. Very rare!!

    Cheers,

    Richard.

    Nice Ralph! This is a tough one IMO. It is written kinda oddly.

    (the first # (7) is usually the Kompanie, but there is not 7 kmps/or battalions in a Pz Artillerie Regiment...so I dunno)

    Maybe: Panzer Abteilung 7 ? (but the battalion thing confuses me)
    maybe: 7 Panzer Division....but there Arty Battalion is #78
    (7 Pz Div / Artillerie Battalion 78)
    Maybe: Panzer Artillerie Battalion 72?
    Maybe: Panzer Ausbildungs Battalion of the 7 Pz Div?

    I dont know man, maybe someone can help us figure it out. If it were written in the traditional manner, it would be alot easier! lol
    No Bill, I meant the last digit appears to be a 7, but could be a 2
    Searching for anything relating to, Anton Boos, 934 Stamm. Kp. Pz. Erz. Abt. 7, 3 Kompanie, Panzer-Regiment 2, 16th Panzer-Division (My father)

    Hi guys, I picked these up today at a local antique mall. They are nothing too special I suppose, but I thought I would add them to the thread anyway.

    I got four photos, all of Heer men who are apparently stationed near a very nice beach. One of the photos is of an aircraft in flight, but I can't even guess as to what kind it is.

    Two pictures also have some writing on the back. Andreas, could you help with out with it?

    Great thread guys!

    Hi Mo,

    The aircraft in your photo is a Dornier Do17 medium bomber. Later in the war they were used as heavy night fighters against the RAF.

    The captions refer to a man seen on the photographs. One says:

    "Nik Lorent"

    the other one

    "Nik. Lorenz
    kurz v.
    [= vor] dem Abschied"

    [= just before goodbye]

    Nik. would be a the short form of the first name Nikolaus. The surname is indeed spelt differently on the two photographs: Both Lorent and Lorenz.
