    Default Rats of tobruk in captured afrika korp uniforms 1941

    Hello everyone.
    An interesting photo of some 2nd/43rd aif in some captured german clothing. They certainly look the part.
    This is one of many photos in an album taken at the time by an old digger mate of mine. He said the clothing was brand new unused. After the photos were taken they were left on the spot. One was kept as a trophy. I hope you like them.

    The original photos are quite clear, but my scanner is sick, so these are taken from my camera. Sorry about the quality.

    I just happen to collect both Afrikakorps and items from the 2/43rd, so for me this is great to see.

    Glad you like these photos, here are a few more from the same album.

    I will get my scanner fixed soon to improve the quality of these photos.

    (a lot of the other photos are quite graphic, and i am not sure if they are allowed on this site)

    Thanks again for some great pics.

    We do allow graphic pics on the site. Just post a warning before you put them up if you are concerned.

    Cheers, Ade.
