"Rückkehr vom Betriebsausflug der Firma Hermann Göring."
"Return from the company excursion of the company Hermann Göring." (that means Luftwaffe)
"Aus dem gelobten Land!" - "From the promised land!"
"Chamberlain Nachfolger" - The successor of Chamberlain"

Hi Slava,

thank You very much for posting this very interesting pic. On this armored car You can find some announcements of a special program, maybe on the day of the Wehrmacht or on an open-door day of this unit.
Here the translation from top to bottom:
"Jede Fahrt RM 0,50" - "Every ride (costs) RM (Reichsmark) 0,50"
"Was ist bei den Panzerjägern in Haste los?" - "What is going on with the members (soldiers) of the anti tank unit in Haste?"
Haste is an interesting location, part of the town Osnabrück in Lower Saxonia. It must be the "Kasernen auf der Netterheide" (barracks on the Netterheide). I could find a postcard with the pic of these barracks in the internet. The question is, what antitank unit could it be? I have the information, that the infantry regiment 37 of the 6th infantry division was stationed in these barracks. So it could be the the 14th AT company of this regiment.
"Motorradakrobatik mit humoristischen Einlagen. 13.00 - 14.00, 15.00 - 16.00, 17.00 - 18.00 Uhr" - "Acrobatics on motorcycles with humorous interludes. 13.00 - 14.00, 15.00 - 16.00, 17.00 - 18.00 o´clock."
"Pakschießen , Besichtigung der Kasernen, Hallen, Werkstätten und Beutefahrzeugen." - "Shooting of AT guns, sightseeing of the barracks, halls, workshops and captured vehicles."
"Tanz, Musik und Ausschank im Freien." - "Dancing, music and outdoor serving."
"Fahren mit Panzerwagen." - "Riding on armored vehicles."
"Panzerjägervorführungen, 14.00 - 14.45, 16.00 - 16.45, 18.00 - 18.45 Uhr" - Antitank demonstrations 14.00 - 14.45, 16.00 - 16.45, 18.00 - 18.45 o´clock"

Hi uncle,

thank You very much for posting the two pics. Excuse me, please, but I couldn´t answer earlier. I was in Poland on holidays.
Now to the text on the pics:
"Lauf Churchill lauf, die Deutschen kommen!" - "Run, Churchill, run, the Germans are coming!"
Interesting: on the left a caricature of Chamberlain (typical with top hat and umbrella) and on the left a sign with the inscription "Schweiz" - "Svizzerland"
"Deutsche Flieger machen´s gründlich" - "German pilots/airmen are doing it thoroughly,"
"John Bull, dem wird´s ganz schwindlig!" - "John Bull is getting totally dizzy!"
To John Bull: John Bull is a national personification of the United Kingdom in general and England in particular, especially in political cartoons and similar graphic works.

Best regards

Bert

Hi,

here the next graffiti from me, this time on a Einheitsdiesel with a field kitchen after the campaign in France I think.
"La Rochelle - Rochefort - Bordeaux - Biarritz - Paris - Verdun - Berlin"
I think these are the towns on the way back to Germany from France.
"Sieg Heil Cognac Parole Heimat"

Hi Sturm 78,

thank You very much for posting this interesting pic.
Here the text with some explanations:
"Der Schirmherr von England!" - "The patron of England!
The German word "Schirmherr" has a double meaning: patron and man with the umbrella.
"Polska, Polska, du entschwandest!" - "Poland, Poland, You disappeared!"
"Chamberlain, Negus, Benesch, Beck - alles Dreck" - "Chamberlain, Negus, Benesch, Beck - all rubbish"
Chamberlain was the prime minister of Great Britain, Negus was the emperor of Abessinia, Benesch was the president of Czechoslovakia and Colonel Beck was the foreign minister of Poland.
Sorry, I cannot decipher the other words.

Best regards

Bert

Hi Sturm,
If judging from the wheel hubs it is Krupp L3H 63/163.
Cheers!
