    I've never seen the picture of an MP40 with winter camouflage, that's really cool.

    Wow! Look at Rommel's third pic. The MP40 is cool, but the Gew98 Sniper is WAY cool! Not only unusual to see in a WWII context, but with Fallschirmjäger yet?
    I wonder if that telephone pole fit into a drop container?

    Looks like an early LT K98k and an MP38 to me. Tunisia in early 1943?

    Kreta. Fairly well known pic series in FJ collector circles. The FJ took a beating as they were fighting Anzacs and such, many of whom were rural types and roo shooters, not to mention the Cretans. So they needed a scout/sniper capability.

    MP (38 or 40 can't tell) with a dust cover......don't think I've ever seen a period pic of one of these.

    Tunisa, late '42 or early '43

    MP with Dust Cover - Tunsia late 1942 or 1943.jpg
