No, sadly I don't. I have always felt I recognized several of the faces from a famous series of FJ photos taken inside a JU52.. I picked that photo up from ebay some time ago (2 years?), it came out of Europe.

OT, It looks like Kansas is awake this morning!

Eric,

Fantastic portraits you posted at the beginning of this thread. Thanks for sharing them! Here's a few that are out of a photo album that belonged to Bruno Risse. He was with 5./FJR1.

Bill, or anyone, just send them to me and ( if they are not too big ) I will post them for you. No problem.

I didn't say they had to be "German" paratroopers. ( did I ? )

Eric,


I think you have some of the photos I would like to post..hint..sniper. I will also send some scans of Portraits that I have. Better save them Italian FJ for your next book...you don't want them showing up everywhere before you even publish - Bill
