    I might be wrong but to survive the new Israel country used also other German military stuff like tanks to survive ca 1948 the Arabic nations' attack.

    We have at least one bf 109 in Utti that I saw in the 1990's. Do not know what model it is to be honest but quite sure it was used since early 1944 against the Carelian isthmus Soviet attack to protect the German Stukas of Group Kuhlmey and also as a night fighter against Soviet bombers who had Helsinki as target.

    Thanks, yes, I really like the Red Cross trucks! (I had edited that first link because it did not apply to my photo, but you may find it of some interest) I am a “stickler” for old Army trucks. I had a large die cast model when I was younger. Real hard rubber tires. I could kick myself now for ever selling it to a collector around 1980.
