► Photothread: Graffiti on vehicles of the Wehrmacht

Post by SIS 5 » 06 Jun 2017 10:35

Hi all,

maybe it is interesting to post a new topic about Graffiti on vehicles of the Wehrmacht. I will try to post one pic a week.
Here the first: "Parole Heimat" (password home) on the roof of the cabin, "Gehste weg!" (Go away!) on the bumper.

Regards

Bert
