    Default Captured K98 Photos

    I thought I had posted this album in the forums before, but I wasn't able to find it. I created an album of captured K98s from various sources including this forum. If anyone has additional photos to add or corrections to the current content, please let me know. I would appreciate it.

    EDIT: The thread is at http://www.k98kforum.com/showthread....ight=imgur.com. Sorry for the double reference.

    Great pictures thanks (again) for sharing.

    I doubt the piles from Soest were exclusively from 6. Parachute Div.personnel. There are quite a few foreign weapons in there, so maybe general Luftwaffe personnel with some Fallschirmjager mixed in?

    Where violence is the local language, be fluent.

    Yes, the piles were likely from all armed forces and probably include some partisan stuff. Here's another pic of the Soest surrender, this one full of MG's.......

    I doubt that any were confiscated from the Dutch Resistance Movement. There were plenty of foreign weapons taken earlier and redeployed in the Wehrmacht to account for the types shown in the pictures.
