    Disarmament of LW Aircraft (Grove, Denmark) - MG81 + MG131 + MG 151

    Here is a photo that I stumbled upon by accident when recently looking at offerings on the GunBroker website. The photo was included in the seller's posted photos of something entirely unrelated to WWII German items; I have no idea why he included it in the offering photos. in any event, I snagged the photo for my archives as I've never seen it before. The photographer's description on the reverse contains pertinent details.

    Any chance someone has a nice clear scan of this photo that they would share? All I currently have is what you see . . . a photo of a photo.

    Lots of interesting details are visible in the photos (especially the nuances in the MG81's - some have a blued finish; some have a phosphate finish; some have a mixed blued + phosphate finish). Also on the MG81's, you can see that very few of them have flash hiders on the muzzles . . . most are without (as I believe is consistent with the scarcity of original flash hiders encountered on MG81's in modern collections).

    I bet some of you can point out other interesting details, so let's discuss . . .

    BTW: Here is some information I found about the LW airfield at Grove, Denmark, where the photo was taken.
