Hi Daniel,

I was trying to attach another pic but apparently the sticky can only hold this many pics -- a meesage came across and said maximum filesize reached. Time for a Chapter two?

Cheers

No, that message talks about the total for the forum, there are no thread based limits.

Hello,

Definitely not von Canstein. Found another pic of this RKT. He was captured by British troops in Bremerhaven. Von Canstein was commander of 220 GrRgt, part of 58 Inf Div that found only on the Eastern Front.

Thank you Fangio and John.

I guess Arpke didn't make it because he was an NCO!
