Good going Ryan. Also, Ive got a nice Heinrich Hoffmann press pic of Friedrich Christiansen--he is wearing an NSFK Generals uniform. He was a General in that and the Luftwaffe at the same time. He is also a Pour le Mreite recipient.

When I next see Gary--ill see if he can post that pic and a new one I just bought today.

The new one shows a Frainch Colonial Soldier (who is non-caucasian) with his head sticking out of a tent made from Zeltbahns.

You might ask: "Whats so special about that?"

Well......there is a painted sige erected by the Germans who put it next to the tent in which this man was placed. The sign reads: "Sensation des Tages! Gefangener Neger vom Westfeldzug zu Sehenf" and I think it gives a date.

Apparently--for a German to see a live Frainch Colonial Soldier, I guess this POW was some sort of major attraction--or a novelty.

NO PROBLEM FRIEDRICH-glad it is appreciated...

Carl, yes I saw that pic last week on the Wehrmacht Awards forum. 2 things struck me as rather odd about it-One, I cant speak German so I can't undertsand the sign-and secondly, the soldier in question looks like he is merely inmakeup, It doesnt look like he is an actual black soldier-i just thought It was a group of German soldiers playing a prank for a laugh with some captured French equipment...

Hi Ryan--I looked at it closely--he definately is colored. I think he is Senegalese--who were very tough apponents of the Germans. Rarely did a man from Senegal surrender--they usually fought to the death.

When the Dunkirk evacuation was happening--it was Senegalese units who stayed behind and continously oon the front lines. Now I know some Frainch units stayed behind as well as many British units. It was mainly the Senegalese who fought to the last bullet--and death.

Basically the sign reads: "Sensation of the Day" (for a more proper word) Black Prisoner from the Western Army. I know this isnt an exact translation but, its the best I can do.
