Hi,

here a pic of a captured RAF Coles EMA mobile crane I posted five years ago, but now with the text of that time:
"Our airplanes must always be ready for action for the uninterrupted reprisal raids our Luftwaffe (German Air Force) against England. They recondition the engine of a Heinkel bombardment airplane H 111. A captured English crane of the R.A.F. is well serving here."

Regards

Bert

Hi,

here a pic of a mobile crane of the German navy (Marine). Does anybody know more about this crane?

More pics of it, probably the first one is different mark, or a special version for Luftwaffe or Kriegsmarine, for it differs in some details (solid tyres with tread, rivets, etc):

And its 1960 edition, which is basically the same:

Hi,

here a pic of an interesting crane truck. I think it is a captured Morris Commercial chassis, but with field modifications by the Germans (source of the pic: an expired ebay auction).

Regards

Bert
