Here´s one. Don´t have the source though, sorry. Had it for a long time. Looks like it was published in a book.

Post by Fallschirmjäger » 27 Oct 2007 02:51

In FJ uniform you mean,as the other picture is in the heer right,will look around a bit now.
(Well before i posted i saw no answer,but see there is one now,but then maybe Peter wants one in FJ uniform more clearly like a posed one in dress uniform etc...)

And this thread is for knights cross with the iron cross and above winners right,not lower?.
