Street march.

Wedding day

Dug these up today. Wedding of a quite highly decorated young man. Dated: June fifth 1943. Can anybody identify the medal on the left breast pocket.

Both pictures from Poland. No unit ID on the truck, but appear to be mtn troops again. A lot of combat damage in the town.

Railroad station.

These guys apparently kicked some butt in Poland and are now in route to France to do the same. I am told that it was common for troops to mark their rail cars. Nice uniform shot of the railroad police, perhaps the heer officer is trying to explain how the writing got there, they do not look very ha...
