Default Studio Portrait

Another great example from the series shown in Jean-Yves book Green Devils. This Fj holds an MP 38/40, wears an early Mag. pouch, and a very fine jumpsmock. Looks to be another image of one of the Jagers shown in Jean-Yves book.

Greetings Daniele! Your eyes are fine, and it’s great to see you posting here again! Although it appears not to be waffenfarbe piping. Quite unusual.

If you examine the series of photos closely you will see a lot of the FJ are wearing the exact same helmet and smock . I suspect they shared equipment for the photos as well.

Yes indeed. This one however is the first I remember with an MP38/40. How about you Steve?

Hi

Great photo . The color of tabs is certainly black because all are from the Pion. btl. Witzig.
