these pictures talk a thousand words, the soldiers who sat there had been through many campaigns , seen lots of close friends killed or maimed in action and had by then little respect for the highrachy generals. ive enjoyed seeing these pictures very much,may i have your permission to down load them and print them off for my small ss collection please ? regards from george
It is interesting that the panzer guy has converted an army wrapper by adding SS runes cut from a tab to army collar tabs.

I am always gladdened by Ben's curiosity and energy from which we all profit.
Great pics Ben thanks for sharing.
