    Hey guys!!! I can't keep up with you Some of these lads are very young indeed. Look at the Gefreiter with the Para badge. He would have to have made 1-6 jumps at least. 6 if the pic is before 1944! Some very telling imges. I can unfortunately only contribute with enthusiasm

    JP, i did not dare to write "DAK" without "tropical" as well

    Don't know why but i guess he maybe did not like to crawl around with the handle in his ribs. Some also mounted the E-tool handle upwards instead of having it hanging down. Painful to fall on.
