Luftwaffe Photo

Recommended Posts

Here is a original picture I just got, WW2 Luftwaffe. On the reverse is a note explaining what the details are, most likely for media release. The note is from 1942, Tunis saying basically these luftwaffe troops are securing the airfield. However, I think this is staged, as these are pretty high ranking troops to be guarding a airfield with no weapons other than grenades and pistols. The oberfeldwebel on the right, is wearing the Spanish Cross with swords, indicating he is veteran on the Spanish civil war. I think they are more likely just inspecting the perimeter or out taking pictures. A nice detailed photo regardless.
