These pics come from a brazilian buddy. German paratroopers took the "unmarked" jeep during a raid against jugoslavian partisans. Note the first para has his MP40 full cocked. Other germans are in Holland (only in Holland CIGARS is SIGAREN)

The jeep on the bottom pic is modified for the British para's; note the special nut for quickly take off the steering wheel. As far as I can see it this is a Willys MB, and my guess is this pic was taken during Market-garden. Are those 2 men in the back (captured) British para's?

You're right! Captured allied on a british para's jeep can mean only Market Garden. There are chances this pic would have been shot the day of my birth: 20th September 1944.

Lloyd, the rack here in the states is reffered to as a rifle rack, I do not know exact nomenclature but I think it is mount rifle vehicle. it is compatoible with the garand,1903,carbine and thompson sub machine gun I cannot recal but I think a BAR also fits
