Re: 686.JPG
Interesting picture.

Mixture of halftracks and wheeled prime movers. And the Krupp Boxers personnel carriers (Kfz. 70) but not in the normal personnel carrier configuration; plus the usual standard light gun-towing type with integral ammunition storage (Kfz. 69). And only two gun platoons (eight antitank guns).
Information not passed on is lost.

Are there two white crosses on the motorcycle in the bottom right corner of 686.jpg?
That might be 60.Infanterie-Division (mot.) from Danzig...
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Interesting photo, Max.

I enlarged the photo 10X and it seems the guy is about to point a pistol at his head.

Do you have any further information???

Good spot, Bill! I thought he was just deep in thought or had a headache, but it does appear to be a small caliber handgun in his hand. Maybe he was just passed over for promotion. :o

An interesting group with what I believe is a Mercedes-Benz Type L 57 / N 58 to the left of the Sd. Kfz. 7/1:

Hi shamirnewell,
That's probably more likely . From the look of the vehicles maybe an inspection is coming up.
