I am not sure if this topic has ever been covered or brought up but I was wondering if we could start an enemy capture photo thread? I know only U.S. related material is permitted on the forum but how about photos showing U.S. forces either utilizing or standing with enemy equipment? For example, a G.I. holding a captured German Luger or a group of Marines displaying a captured Japanese flag? I will start by posting one example that I think would be okay.

I believe that these pictures are acceptable and will be of interest.

I like that one! I have seen these kind of photos before, they seem to have a good time taking each other prisoner!
