Yeah, četnik, of course.
I have the same kokarda at home.
It is unusual type, without double headed eagle,
just with death's head with crossed bones
and crossed kubura handgun and kama knife below it.

Cheers,
Ivan

Anyway, let's see what was Wehrmacht doing:

1.) Checking the "Bandenverdaechtiger" haus in some village;
2.) Some were found;
3.) And what a surprise,even more were found...

I don't know what are you talking about. ( :lol: )

2nd & 3rd photos show (possible 1st Division ?) Gebirgsjäger.

OK here's one offensive for you:
first battle for "Prinz Eugen" men was against Keserović's četniks
and četniks defeated them (Operation "Kopaonik").

I'll send you more, when I get some books (I have a feeling that I already wrote this somewhere...? :D )

Hajde ba komshija,this is a serious forum with serious members-anything konkretno?

Did the Jaeger units wear the Edelweiss badge on the cap and a patch on the sleeve? They had some kind of abzeichen,hadn't they?

1.)Pack column passing trough a village;
2.)Motorised column in Balkan mountains,late 1944;
3.)Patroling the woods.

What do you need konkretno for? Offensives or Gebirgsjäger?

Gebirgsjäger - man in 2nd photo (your previous post) wears Geb.J. jacket,
and in 3rd there's an edelweiß badge visible on one soldier's cap.
(also 1st photo in your next post shows Gebirgsjäger unit - mountain boots, beasts of burden etc...).

Offensives - šta ćeš konkretnije for a start, then Operation "Kopaonik".
O.Kumm writes in P.E. history about it at the very beginning.
(I can send you more info by p.m., because it would be off-topic to post it here)

Cheers,
Ivan

Yes,but did the Jaeger units have some abzeichen on their caps? Can it be that they were issued the same jackets? I looked for some info,but found none...

1.) Cossacs in Croatia;
2.) Germans checking the containers the Allies have dropped to the partisans;
3.) Artillery column soon to run into some serious action...

Hi guys,

These pictures are wonderful, thanks for posting! :)

And Flaks… What can I say? Hvala po sto puta!!! :D


And, does anyone have photos of any Handschar and/or Prinz Eugen war crimes? I mean photos which show executions, shooting people, burning houses, etc. I desperately need photos of that kind. I had seen some long time ago, but I cannot find them today. So, any photos of Handschar (or Prinz Eugen) bad guys...?

My pleasure,zemljak! (Can you confirm it was taken in Tuzla? Building ID?)

I've never seen pictures of Handzar warcrimes. More than anxious to see them!

Ziv bio,
