Recommended Posts

Hello Sal & Friends,

Here is a picture i have from a glider pilot legacy, it does show Hptm (in the picture still Olt.) Dumke togheter with a few of his Ofw & Fw's arround him.

The picture s to date arround early 1944 and i tought it was a nice and interesting one for the Spanisch cross lovers.

The spanisch cross soldier was a towingpilot attache towards the glider unit.

Cordial greetings,

Hi Paul,

I believe it was shoe polisch or something like that, this was to celebrate the promotions that where given towards the soldiers who had their faces a bit dirty => the celebration of the improvement of rank towards Oberfeldwebel (strange habit, but then again it was war :cheeky: )

These guys do belong towards the so called L.L.G.2 (Luftlande Geschwader 2).

Cordial greetings,
