The sign at the top of the house when enlarged looks like Italian words. Very blurry.

Really nice additions.

I found some new pictures of beutepanzer too at warhistoryonline.

 

This one was already posted in post #15, but from a different angle

Another one, looks like Africa too, tan colored uniforms and painted helmets, this one has a Flak Kannone mounted into it after capture, haven't ascertained the type of cannon that is yet, will shop this around on WMF, maybe it too is a Erbeute model, Czech. Polish???

Not a Weapon in the strictest sense I know, But I've Been looking at this photo for years and years, first seen it in 1983 in this big book I bought and still have by Andrew Mollo HERE

 

Seeing the photo now online, I never noticed this Schütze of the Herman Göring Division in the lead has an American GI T Handle Entrenching Tool shoved in his belt, never noticed till a couple of days ago LOL, always thought it was and opened German folding one LOL.

Wow the Germans were even using captured Halftrack in 1940, did we send these out that early to the French or English!

Not to be difficult, but this pic is not from 1940. I'm interested in where it was obtained.

😄That's from a movie, the 1969 The Battle of Britain, a sequence when the Germans got the Allies on the run.  I was just doing my customary goofing around 😆

 

I did the same with the two other color photos, these being from Patton the other The Battle of the Bulge 😊.

Not only the germans used foreign equipment, the american 83rd division was called the "Rag Tag Circus" in 1945 because of the use of every german vehicle they can find, who gave them at least 90% of the speed of the 2nd armored divison on their race to the Elbe.

Just found this one, again, not a weapon, but here's a German Medic captured in the Ardennes, check out what he he using as Medical Pouches, he ain't got the standard German ones  like these and this for whatever reason, so he cleverly is using two captured G.I. Leather Binocular Cases instead.

This oft seen Still from the Ardennes Offensive Cine Footage of a Soldier of the Panzer Lehr Division, as he draws on the shield of a 57mm Anti Tank Gun of a knocked out emplacement of the Anti Tank Company 335th Infantry 84th Infantry Division in Rochefort. We see that he has either armed himself with a U.S. Carbine or he has just found it and picked it up , he also appears to be wears a U.S. M41 Field Jacket AUS DER TRAUM has a few translations, The Dream is Over, The Show is Over, It's All Over, Out of a Dream

Its seen in its  entirety in a episode of the 73-74 seminal British ITV  TV series  The World at War, the Episode called Pincers (August 1944 – March 1945), but its no longer viewable on YT anymore for some reason, from what I could see, other episodes are but not this one.

 

It is however viewable here.
