Some very nice itmes here Sturm. Do you know in which places they were billeted in France?
I got a photo of a German Division. In front a monument in Versailles! You know the place?
I sure do. It's the main entrance of the Chateau, near the famous Galerie des Glaces. The statue is Louis XIV. Versailles was one of the German favorite "tourist" detinations because it inspired Sans Souçi in Potsdam and Schönnbrünn in Vienna. They loved to visit this place on a day trip which would also take them to the Arc de Triomphe in paris ( they would pay tribute to the Unkown soldier grave), the Eiffel Tower, symbol of Paris which they occupied and the Moulin Rouge for their evening parties. Almost every soldier has been to those places and pictures of these monuments are quite commun.
Well, THANK YOU!
You are welcome, if you need other identifications of French cities don't hesitiate to ask.
Well I got another picture. Position change from Jersey - Nantes. You know the places?
I'm selling 4 Photos of the Luftwaffe
The photo with the train, with the LW soldiers and one has his pet with him, on the backside:
Stellungswechsel Jersey - Nantes
14.10. 43 Jersey
19.10. an Nantes
1.11. ab Nantes
3.11. an Cognac
It would be interesting to find out which unit was based in Jersey (Channel Island, belongs to England, see my stamp collection thread) and Nantes, Atlantic coast south of Britanny and Cognac, south of Nantes going towards Bodeaux. These guys could in fact be part of a Flak battery staff. It is difficult to say where exactly they are, there are barracks and buildings that could be anywhere.
