Does anybody have photos of soldiers of the 7th SS Volunteer Mountain Division Prinz Eugen which would like to share in this thread? I'm especially interested in portraits if possible.  

I would greatly appreciate the photos and thanks in advance!

I will share some of the photos I've found online. They're mostly from the site Bandenkampf in Jugoslawien 1941-1945 and there's photos which I don't remember where I've found them.

First photo shows a portrait of an unknown soldier. It's so far my favorite since the collar tab is very detailed on the photo and because of the photo's rough condition.

SS-Obersturmbannführer Bernhard Dietsche. He's wearing an EK 1st class and I think Infantry Assault Badge on his left breast pocket. On his right breast pocket, he's wearing an Order of the Crown of King Zvonimir 2nd class with Oak Leaves if I'm not mistaken.

Some interesting photos showing the PE rune. I have a Soldbuch to a Prinz Eugen Knights Cross & DKiG winner but unfortunately it doesn't have his photo in it.

Very nice! Too bad it doesn't include the photo of it's owner. Could you post the Soldbuch here? I know I've created this thread for photos but I'm sure it would fit nicely with the rest of the posts.

An unknown soldier holding something I cannot identify. Could those be medical bandages? 


This soldier is holding the leather flare cartridge holder.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
