Picture Thread - WWII

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by meridian, Sep 2, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. meridian

    Thought I would start a thread for display and discussion of WWII photos.

    Any thoughts on splitting the thread by nation, unit type or whatever else?

    I will be adding on a regular basis but as a starter for 10 here is a random selection

  6. Excellent photos, keep them coming. As an aside, how come the German Landsers always appear to be quite lightly loaded in terms of kit? It seems that modern soldiers carry far more, even when down to 'fighting order.'

  8. Great pics, more please!
     
  9. Blimey!

    The quality of some of these is amazing, they look like they were taken last week not 60 odd years ago.

    Brilliant!

  15. Meridian,
    There are some great photos here already, but I for one would really appreciate some info with the photos. Year, place, unit (if possible) and so on. It would really make this a lot more interesting and useful.

    Now to set you a challenge. Find me some decent photos of the Guards Armoured Division 1944-1945, motorised infantry units if possible, but I'll settle for whatever you can find.

    There are a few interesting ones on Flickr.

    Cheers
