    If anyone is interested in this rather interesting aspect of WW2, I can recommend a recently purchased book.

    "For Free India; Indian soldiers in Germany and Italy during the Second World War" by Martin Bamber.

    The Free Indian Legion - Home Page

    Contains many more photos of Indian soldiers in German and Italian service with orders of battle and personal stories.

    Regards

    Richie

    BTW - I have connection with the book other than as a buyer.
