thanks guys.

I was able to get a old wooden box full with 150 original german ww2 color slides from a old man that didnt want them any more.

they were going to go in the bin and then the same week, he found out i collected these old color slides.

so thank god, it all worked out and i found this incredible and rare collection.

I was able to do a little bit of research from some unit symbols found.

I posted up all the findings here http://www.pixpast.com/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=1093 if your interested.

I still have to make some sort of historical connection between the 711 heavy artilery division and the 62 infantry division, seen together in these color photos ??

best wishes.

Ian

s.Art.Abt 711 (as opposed to Division which I don't think existed) and 62 Infanterie Division were both components of 6 Armee (Heeresgruppe Süd) in 1941 & 1942 so it is very possible/probable that the artillery unit was assigned to support 62 ID at some point.
