    Hard to say for sure, but that last pix could be a Polish Hawk fighter.

    Some real interesting shots in this grouping. I keep getting surprised by the different subject matter that I see as I go through the collection.

    I posted the some of the slides on ww2talk.com including the ones that included the graves. Some great information was given to me by a member named "dbf" who is a Moderator of the Forum. It seems that they are all buried in Bourdon War Cemetery. I also got a link for "Find a Grave" for Stefan Fisch which also had a photo of him that someone had posted.

    Then also from another member "steelers 708" some background information on the 199th and "LIST" that was on the markers..

    The title 'list' was an Honour title given to the 199th Infanterie Regiment. It was the successor to the K├Âniglich Bayerisches Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 16, named "List" after its commander Oberst Julius List, of 6. K├Âniglich Bayerische Reserve-Division during the First World War. It also happened to be the regiment that Hitler had served in in WWI.

    I just finished up another tray of the B&W slides. They are more of a military theme then the colored ones and also include more grave pictures. Thanks to everyone for comments/information and as always look forward to your feedback

    Finished up another tray of slides from the grouping. Some interesting ones with Kriegsmarine and I think one of the first with wounded soldiers.

    Great stuff, jba. Hards to miss the universal experience of a soldier's life in these collections. Thanks for sharing!

    My pleasure to share. I have had them now for about 30 years. I have not brought them out since I had first purchased way back when. I think I am going to invest in a high end scanner and take the time to clean up and enhance each one. Besides that grouping I have about another 10K of photos and groupings that I am trying to organize. I continue to purchase the photographs since these always tell a story and for the most part are still safe. I just purchase 250 photos of women in Germanys military and there are some really interesting subject matter.

    Nice work, 45.
    enjoyed the last picture, which shows just how petite the renault tanks were.
    they had to put a dome in order for (probably an already short tanker) to sit there.

    think the renaults also may have been amongst the first to employ sloping armour.

    Be sure to get a scanner with Digital ICE technology so it can automatically clean up colour slides & negatives. It is what I use. Vuescan should work with every scanner and OS and be able to correct for colour casts.
