    Default Some Interesting Photos

    These are some I've saved over the years.

    First this young man who is definitely armed and dangerous. Look at the way his F-1 grenades are attached to the belt. Almost as if he has pushed the pins through the holes in his belt or passed the belt through the rings so he can prime them 1 handed.
    Also he appears to have tied 1 RGD 33 on with string.
    He must have made one hell of a noise on the move. Every time I look at this one I can't help but smile, then think "You're scratching the Nagant!!!"

    In a very nice pre-43 trench complex with a Bren gun.

    A fantastic action shot of a seemingly happy red army man firing a panzerfaust (incorrectly?) at something close-up. You really see the immense blast from firing, wouldn't want to shoot one from in a building, I might lose my tashe. Incredible to think that later on some tubes were made of cardboard.

    Some poor souls dead in their foxholes. Look at the liner of the nearest man's helmet. What is it???

    Probably a posed photograph but do you think women soldiers were actually issued captured K98s when times were hard?

    Grenades anyone? Once again Stalingrad. I think the closest soldier will get a nasty surprise when he tries to bend over, hopefully he didn't get a wound badge.
    Is that a Telemine in front of the machinegunner?

    A cat in the Stalingrad factory district that the Russians used to tie propaganda to and send to the Germans. If I remember the 'story' correctly they sent if off at least 7 times and each time he came back with no papers, the Germans were probably glad for the cuddle and something to burn.

    Walking up on that t34 would be scary enough as infantry but seeing the k98 tied to it probably increased the fear factor, and if I was in the battle of Stalingrad and rations were low I do not think I would send the cat back... jk

    Thanks chaps.

    Some more from my Stalingrad collection. (I might make a proper research thread at some point, but that will take a while)

    Camel removal service. This resident appears to be returning to whatever is left of his home. He is passing the ruins of the No.1 Train Station (see the water tower), to the left (out of shot) is the famous Barmaley Fountain (crocodile and the children) and behind the photographer is the Tsaritsyn museum.

    The entrance to the Red October Steel Plant.
    What's left of the sign says.
    'Stalingrad
    Metallurgical 1N Order....
    Plant Red...'

    Premature Drapeage. In a foreshadowing of later events. A German soldier constructs a makeshift plumbing flag pole to raise the Swastika over Fallen Heroes 'Red' Square from the 3rd floor of the Univermag Department Store (later Paulus' HQ), probably around October 1942.

    Mix and Match. 2 very pleased be-medalled Russian soldiers from opposite ends of the USSR at Stalingrad wearing both collar types. (Post February 1943)

    I found some more.

    I don't know what's going on at this airfield but the men on the left seem to be smiling, 2 almost look like twins.

    What appears to be a partisan child soldier with his comrades carrying a DT machinegun and what look like captured MG08/15s.

    Turks with their SS fezzes. (Note to self. Never Google 'fezes' again)

    Early Russian AA defences. A large group of snipers trying to shoot down a plane 1943.

    The womens rifles are Czech VZ24's which makes a little more sense than K98's. The straight bolt and sight hood are the giveaway.

    They are all cracking photo's though and that first bloke is only a Shashka away from being a Russian Armoury, although having said that, he'll have a job firing his PPSh with those mittens on!
