Hello all: I'm looking for photos specifically of Hotel des Invalides/Tomb of Napoleon during the German occupation. I'm also interested in knowing which German military units were quartered at Invalides, especially in the summer of 1943. Thanks!

Sorry Max,
That picture was no token on a tramwaycar (there are no tramway's anymore in Paris at that moment) but on the rear platform of a Renault bus (maybe a TN6 model)
Kindly regards
Prosper :wink: :wink:

Thanks for the correction, Prosper. You are right, of course. I should have noted the lack of rails! :roll: :oops:

I believe it is a 1938 Opel Super Six.
