Some amazing finds. Pics I'd never seen before. A couple of sets of pics from Skorzeny's rescue of Mussolini from Gran Sasso. Category:Deutsches Bundesarchiv pictures by Toni Schneiders - Wikimedia Commons and here - Category:Deutsches Bundesarchiv pictures by Bruno von Kayser - Wikimedia Commons.

Skorzeny and Mussolini and about 50 others.

Also, some pics of Adolph Galland in southern Italy: Category:Deutsches Bundesarchiv pictures by Ketelhohn - Wikimedia Commons

And tell von Mudra there are plenty of pics of the Lafette in use!

I've had this bookmarked for awhile, so trust me, I've seen the lafettes :P

Me and reenactor friends have fun paging through it. Almost every photo we find of soldiers in combat/in the field has things we've never seen before, or are completely not in line with what the old farts who run the CHG would have us think:P

Great archive, when indexed will be perfect

Look, not only spaniards had bizarre hand-made vehicles File:Bundesarchiv Bild 101I-005-0015-05, Jugoslawien, Polizeieinsatz, Truppentransport.jpg - Wikimedia Commons

I suggest also the fantastic astralian site, pure gold Collection Databases

Can someone say me where is this? http://djbarney.silentflame.com/storage/Bundesarchiv_Bild_101I-599-1043-31,_Frankreich,_Soldaten_im_Liegestuhl_vor_Bunker.jpg

FlyGuy45;4760144Haha, what the fuck is that? XD

Well the original image says "Panzer T13" so I will wait for Anlushac or Mudra or someone to explain further.

That picture with the beach chairs looks like Dover to me...

EDIT: Apparently it was a Belgian mobile AT gun and Germany took over a few. Said to have quite a good gun for its time. Source

Perhaps Germans were spying on Brits at Dover? I wonder where else has tall, vertical white cliffs?

It's not bad, but it's basically a copy of the photo archive that has been available on the Bundesarchiv website for a while now. But I guess that having multiple websites host the images only aids in them being more easily accessible. Seen all the Arnhe(i) photo's before and more on:

Bundesarchiv - Picture database:

They seem to be of slightly higher resolution (800 instead of 500 pixels) and without watermark so... nice.

It's a Belgian T-13 B3 Tank destroyer. The cliffs along the coastline near Calais are similar looking to the white cliffs of Dover (All are chalk) IIRC. Besides Germans soldiers at Dover at the height of WWII, not likely. ;)
