Re: Signal issue

Funny, I have seen that picture hundreds of times over and only now notice that the birdie's wing has an odd shape....

It's just a crease in the tunic and not a strange SS type Heer eagle smile

Still a very nice magazine cover and rather iconic.

Interesting thought.  On first impression I thought the photo had been touched up to give the appearance of a flat eagle on the chest. It certainly is an iconic image!

Re: Signal issue

Tom is right. The edge of the eagle is applied in an odd way. Makes it look like an SS eagle.

The crease that Dermot has mentioned is below the wing and doesn't affect the eagle's application.

Re: Signal issue

Thanks for all your comments guys.

I believe there is a thread somewhere on this forum discussing the eagle and photo on the cover of this issue, I cant find it at the moment but from what I can remember the conclusion  is the photo is touched up but in correctly, looking at it in person  I also believe this to be the case.
