    And another that I forgot to post, this one has a second group of troops in tropenhelms lined up behind the group photo, probably waiting to go next.

    Hi Tom and thanks. I love the postcards as well, it was the second one's arrival the other day that prompted me to post them here. I like all the images though, as the officer was a Deutsche Kreuz in Gold winner and also in the pic is a tropical canvas washbowl hanging from his tent, of which I have one in my collection. The piths pic appear to be brothers and on the back it says, when last we met. The Guy on his own I also have in another pic when he is home leave and his tunic is almost white and he has his Arkiakorps cufftitle. The group pic is interesting as I never noticed the extra guys standing behind until it had arrived.

    Would love to have the guy's complete uniform in the photo of the 3 guys in you last post.

    Me too. As I said earlier, the guy in the trop uniform is the same soldier in both pics. A before and after pic, showing the fading on his tunic, shoulder straps and cap.
