    I came across this interesting and striking photo, taken from a propaganda book. When I first saw it I thought it was made by re-enactors, but it is indeed a period photo...Menacing crew!

    Nice pic, but, to me anyway, it looks like a "late war posed for Signal/Propaganda Kompanie" photo. But it's given me an idea for a model diorama!!

    Great pic.
    Late war (on account of the STGs, I suppose)?
    Posed or not - they look tense.

    I like the motor too. Last Schwimmwagen I saw was at Munster. I so wanted to take it home and ford a river, LOL.

    They are so alert, no one is going to surprise those guys

    Unless someone sneaks up behind them... there is nobody watching their backs!

    Some lucky G.I. could have himself a couple of StG-44's, a nice set of Zeiss bino's, and a brand new schwimmwagen...

    Ha! There could be a vigilant Landser sat on the tailgate
