Hi Kerry:

Nice photo!

I think it is possible that the car behind the Rolls is a Horch 853 and the sedan to the right a 1939 Chevrolet.

If the vehicles in question had WH or SS plates, does that not mean they were vehicles that were owned by the respective services rather than the personages themselves?

My neighbor had this picture taken while he was in Erwin Rommel’s Horch after it was captured. They were even driving it around. Where is the car now?
