    The picture I posted was labeled "Atlantikwall". Probably France.

    This one of Chris's looks plausible. How near the coast was this found?

    Here is a better version of the Atlantikwall picture that clearly shows the burlap covers under chickenwire. Judging from the obstacles on the beach, I am betting this is the French coast. Just click on the picture to blow it up.

    +1 for French coast. Scott that is an awesome photo of the soldier carrying the P08 and wearing the white camo apron.

    Well I am betting it is the real deal. Maybe even from the same unit as in the photo!
