Thanks a lot!
Okay everyone after this was suggested about 2 years ago and the thread just kept rolling i am bringing it to the table again ! This is a suggestion not an instruction and this thread will remain open !!
I stopped posting in this thread along time ago and only post in my own collection threads now !
For me in a few ways this has become an out of control juggerenaut where any real interest or value has been completely lost in the 353 pages and 3524 posts . We have a hard core of photo collectors who post on here some of whom have built up some wonderful collections of unusual photos of uniforms . locations , equipment, historical and personality photos but i reality most of these are now lost to us all as reference for the future in the general mass and the reality is many of them will not be seen again as no one is going to search 353 pages.
So what i am suggesting is that those who post regulary and have many photos you wish to show and analyse to get further info ( Andreas in particular has done sterling work identifying locations , people etc , translating text which is also being buried ) start an independant thread focusing on your particular collection , that way it will be much more accessable in the future and more people will see what you post and be able to exchange information more readily.
These are my own thoughts on the matter and you are still free of course to post as you wish,

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
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
Got this nice stug photo, presumably somewhere in France. The divisional mark on the car is from Flak abt. 19. Stug has a mark as well, but nearly impossible to read. One of them carries an "A", my guess a reference to the army group.
Cannot read the inscription on the back. Can you make out any words at all? Thanks!
Thanks a lot!
So, I received a couple of new photographs to add to my collection and wanted share them in this thread. I have a lot more pictures in an album, but I´ll just share these cause they're new pick-ups. There is one blurry photo that I just had to buy, because of the orden and the brocade that he is wearing. I've also added a picture of the backside of the photo. There is some german writing, and all I can read is 1938. The rest is a bit blurry to me.
