118. Jäger-Division (gallery)

Post by Ivan Ž. » 07 Oct 2005 15:59

Here are some photos of 118. Jäger-Division,
that I've found a long time ago in one old communist book
in a local library. Unfortunately the book is now stollen...

Image
(divisional insignia)

Photos were taken during Operation "Schwarz".
(Division was at that time under command of Generalleutnant Josef Kübler)

Ma, napisao bih odmah, ali se ne sećam tačnog naziva.
Mislim da je "Sutjeska" (korice su crvene boje - a koje druge bi i mogle biti... :) ).

Cheers,
Ivan

Heheh,

You`re a bit "thin" with names of books (and some operations I asked you about... :D ) but,we`ll grant you an amnesty...

Seriously,I believe that photos like this are extremly rare.These guys don`t look that over-aged and ill-equipped-it appears that March-May "re-stuffing" of the division paid some dividents.In this period some 6,000 men came to the division (Djuro Kladarin "Bitka na Sutjesci",1958).

Cheers,


P.S. Don`t get cocky about the contributions,a simple "thanks guys" would do... :P

Ah, I believe all of your compliments go to photographer... :P .

I had that book once in my hands and it was about 10 years ago...
What operations... (I don't know what are you talking about :lol: ) ?

Btw, I also believe these photos are quite rare,
that is the main reason why I've posted them.

Cheers,
Ivan

Great pics, I must admit that most of them are new to me.

Anyway, my small contribution to this thread, soldiers of 1bat./750 JR/118 JD in not so glorious role, as partisan prisoners after partisan raid on Korčula and Mljet island during april 1944, in Komiža,Vis island:
