Re: German Soldier Portraits in Tropical Uniform.

Hi Mark
this photo is selling on eBay USA ans Swas are allowed there. Besides, this is the listing comment: " Orig. WWII Photo- TROPICAL STUDIO PORTRAIT - NO BREAST EAGLE ".
I wonder why the seller has deleted the eagle? thus making it is more difficult to sell the photo!

Re: German Soldier Portraits in Tropical Uniform.

I thought that the swastika was not allowed in ebay to all countries. Just allowed on stamps and photos for collecting purposes.
Are you sure Marco that it's allowed in the US?

you can find on ebay USA lots of photos with breast eagle and swastika.... Why the seller would have to cancel it?

Re: German Soldier Portraits in Tropical Uniform.

Here is a nice Luftwaffe soldier portrait in sun helmet by a prickly pear cactus commonly seen in Tunisia. Hope you will enjoy!  Barron

Re: German Soldier Portraits in Tropical Uniform.

Nice photo Barron. Interesting to see the leather belt and if i can see correctly the leather ankle boots.

Re: German Soldier Portraits in Tropical Uniform.

Hi Chris! I was thinking that they were short leather boots too with the little ankle type socks that I displayed a while back. Just wish there was a caption on the back of photo to tell place and time as with the other two photos I just posted on candid group photos topic! smile  Barron

Re: German Soldier Portraits in Tropical Uniform.

Here is another Luftwaffe soldier in what must be a dress situation as he wears a dress bayonet on what looks like a leather belt. Card is dated April 1942 cool  Barron

Re: German Soldier Portraits in Tropical Uniform.

Looks like there is insignia on the left sleeve, possibly an eagle?  I doubt SS, but possibly paramilitary (like NSKK) or the like.  Doubt penal battalion as a quality studio photo of someone stripped of insignia while in the dog house seems unlikely.

Re: German Soldier Portraits in Tropical Uniform.

Yes Tom it does look like there is a bit of insignia showing on the sleeve as well as monograms on the shoulder boards. Just wish it was a bit more resolution!  Barron

Re: German Soldier Portraits in Tropical Uniform.

Barron's second photo (post 32) says Lentini on the back. Lentini is in Sicily.

Re: German Soldier Portraits in Tropical Uniform.

Thank you for the information on the location of the photo! Had figured it was going to either be in the Naples area or Sicily!  Barron  smile

Re: German Soldier Portraits in Tropical Uniform.

I just obtained several additional photos of some soldiers in tropical uniform. The first couple of photos were taken at the same location in Naples as one of my previous photos in this thread! Hope you will enjoy!  Barron cool

Re: German Soldier Portraits in Tropical Uniform.

Sure wish someone could read the back and maybe tell who the soldier was/is?   Barron

Re: German Soldier Portraits in Tropical Uniform.

I just obtained this next photo of a soldier in a nice newly issued tropical uniform with a light colored scarf by a stone building. Probably not in Africa?  Barron smile
