Hi,

here an interesting pic: soldiers are making a fire under the engine of an Opel Blitz truck. I think it must have been in Russia in the hard winter 1041/42. Source of the pic: an expired ebay auction.

Regards

Bert

In the 4th mast series pic, is that an airfield light that has been set up?

Jose,
Maybe disguised to look like a British 3-tonner from the air?

Yes that could imply that the unit is of the Luftwaffe

With regards

Hi Jose,
Very interesting photos, but not the same vehicle. Note the supports for the "verandah", on the first photo they were curved towards the bottom, but the new ones are straight all the way down. I wonder if there was a design need for the modification, it looks like two very different locations, one in Africa or the far south of Europe, but the new ones look to be in western or northern Europe. Just an observation, but as I said, very interesting pictures, thank you for posting them.
Cheers,
Kerry.
