    I love that picture ;-) Guys on the right are wearing about $500 worth of gear at today's prices, guys on the left about $50k? Strutting like peacocks... man they sure had style!

    See the guy in the back taking pics, I take it he's in a Propaganda Kompanie uniform? It looks black.

    The pow was from the 301st infantry of the 94th Division. As they didn't arrive in the ETO until September 44 they had missed d day already.

    As paulscoot said: Kriegsmarine
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    A great story and thread,

    for six hours and we were exchanged one for one and three for one if the prisoner was a sergeant.”

    Reminds me of this...
