    Thanks Bill that's what I thought so I m glad I didn't! On the other hand I m glad I m learning the layout of the forum! A couple of questions if you don't t mind? The photos I ve posted came to me through my family from my grandmothers estate to my grandmother and ultimately to me. I ve never actively sought out war photography before so I m unfamiliar as to what a "typical" collection may resemble? I know it will vary by the individual who may have taken the pictures but I ve often wondered why my pics in particular have English descriptions #'s personal notes (refer to arows in some of mine). I think total there are 50 some odd images some of training, burials, general daily functions. A real personal take on the war. Lastly a lot of them seem to deal w the Russian front per american involvement yet the ones with the two seated women have different borders and what looks to me like a American trailer in the background? Just wondering what someone else's perspective would be on them? Regards.

    Hi Brian. I also have a couple photos (not many) with English descriptions on reverse. Not often seen on German photos tho. A simple possibility for this would be that the Vet may have moved to an English speaking country and added the descriptions post-war so not to forget the names of his comrades/etc. As for the image content of your pics, they are pretty common when compared to the majority of other albums/photo groupings of the period. Some guys put them into albums, some didn't. It was common for soldiers to take pics during "downtime" or in a more relaxed atmosphere, which is why it is pretty hard to find photos of actual combat situations or similar. But it is also a good thing too, as you can sometimes trace the steps of the Vets service by trying to ID certain monuments/buildings/etc in the backgrounds of each photo! And it is always the coolest when you have any items relating to your family history as well!

    Very nice photos Brian. i especially like the bar scene and luger.And again thanks to Chris for rotating. Bill, I like the luftscutz with fine display of the helmet and decal!


    I just received some new pics in the mail today. Some are very graphic so I'm not sure if its appropriate to post them here. I will post those in another thread titled, "Graphic ".
    On the other hand I have some photos from the same source that are more appropriate .
    Bill and Chris, I'm sure you will like them! Sorry for the poor images, all I have is my lousy iPad . I'm pretty sure it's from the invasion of France , also there's what looks like an African soldier from one of France's colonies . There's some bunker pics and a wrecked panzer.

    It's a sarcastic, racist remark: "Kulturträger Frankreichs", roughly "The bearer of France's culture".
