Some Interesting Candid Photographs

I am posting a few candid photographs taken in Africa showing some interesting items and perspectives. smile Hope you will enjoy!   Barron

The first is a pair of, I believe Luftwaffe soldiers, showing flimsy sun glasses in use. Has anyone got any of these in their collection on this forum?

Next is a funny picture of a pair of DAK soldiers photographed holding an animal? on the outside of a shelter from the inside! hmm Has anyone had success with removing glue from back of photo album photographs?

Re: Some Interesting Candid Photographs

Next is group of small candid photos from album. Some pretty funny ones as well as some good field shots with neat stuff in the background. big_smile

  First is a pair of soldiers in front of Sdkfz 251 halftrack.

Next is a group sitting down in front of an encampment. Most have dark colored shoulder boards as well as several with NCO chevrons on shirts.

The following is a group under a shelter. Soldier reading letter has interesting crease on shirt/belt?

Next is couple of goofy soldiers posing in front of a tent wearing sun helmets? 

http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll193/barronreb/Military%20Photographs/German%20Tropical%20Portraits/DSC06348_zps46q9nr9w.jpg

Last but not least a typical desert encampment with an odd tent and a Ju-52 aircraft flying in background.

http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll193/barronreb/Military%20Photographs/German%20Tropical%20Portraits/DSC06350_zpsymdrsbkr.jpg,

I decided to add another picture of a couple of Luftwaffe airmen with a vehicle on a transport.

Re: Some Interesting Candid Photographs

Here are the two German officers that I located in the area! Don't know if they came from the same camps and were mixed in with the enlisted personnel? The graves are pretty scattered, with only a few close by each other for some reason? roll  Barron

Re: Some Interesting Candid Photographs

Thought I would show a couple more photos of some posed but candid subjects. The first is an encampment seen showing how a luftwaffe unit pitched their tents in sheltered positions behind a low wall. Sign mentions something of about wild pig which the Germans incorporated as a common subject for some reason?    Enjoy smile  Barron

Re: Some Interesting Candid Photographs

Here is a nice postcard of a Luftwaffe soldier in tropical uniform. No mention of what time period or location. Enjoy! Barron smile

Re: Some Interesting Candid Photographs

Thought I would get back into posting some more candid photos of soldiers in the desert. This first one looks to be of a forward luftwaffe observation post without tripod mounted binoculars and range finders that would have been common for artillery observers. Lots of good stuff laying around the position and what looks like a radio antennae! Just wish is was a little sharper as the rifle looks interesting as well as a possible canteen next to the mess kit  smile  Barron

Re: Some Interesting Candid Photographs

Thanks for the comments! Sure wish the photographer had focused a bit sharper as there sure are a lot of interesting items shown! Nothing noted on back of photo either as to location or date but definitely in the desert! big_smile  Barron
