Post by morrisc8GS » 01 Dec 2016 12:09

I have bought a few original photos of Military Drawings that were on the walls of a workshop or house, that have AKP 581, is it a KFZ unit ID ?.
one the photos has post 22730, might be a Feldpost number and Arras is on another photo.
Cant read german but they look like jokes.
