Default German legionnaire 1947 photo albums 400+ photos

Hello. Seems to be the right place to show some photos of a former German Wehrmacht soldier who joined the French Foreign Legion in 1947 to fight in Indo China.

Two albums with a total of more than 400 phots from the first Indochina war.
Many pictures taken right at the battle fields. Tanks, weapons, etc.

I'll show some samples first. If there is an interest in more photos just tell me.

Regards, Matthias

Enough for the moment.

Important: this albums haven't been in collectors hand before so please don't show these photos nowhere on the Internet without my permission.

Regards, Matthias
