Hi Sturm 78,

thank You very much for posting this very interesting pic. You are right, it is a German mast wagon, but not radio, but telescope for observing the combat or battle from a cover postition. It had the designation "Mastfernrohrwagen". The mast had a height of 25 meters. During WW I it was replaced by captive balloons and observation flights. Here a pic of such a wagon (source of the information and pic: "Bespannte Fahrzeuge des deutschen Heeres" by Wolfgang Fleischer).

Best regards

Bert

Hi,

here a pic with two field wagons Hf. 3 on the Northern front, made by the photographer Umbach of a propaganda company.
Here the text to the pic:

At the Murman front, a few kilometers away from the Arctic, there is already a thick blanket of snow and the temperature is fallen under the freezing point.

Regards

Bert
