No, not the second photo of the thread, the second photo in post #8, which is after the one of the pristine M-1's I was referring to.

Heh! Dunno....maybe an AE US test Luger??? :D

Here's some footage with some brief shots of an SS soldier with an m1 carbine.

Probably taken from the convoy that they attacked.

Probably taken from the convoy that they attacked.

 

 

The scene took place on the road between Recht and Poteau, on Dec. 18, 1944. A group of the 18th Cav. Rec. Squadron (CCA 7th Armd Div.) was ambushed by the leading elements of Kampfgruppe Hansen (1st SS. Panzer Division).

 

Dan.

Always looking for 29th & 36th infantry divisions items (uniforms, medals, groupings, papers, maps, books...)

Yeah I've been looking at this photo literally for 31 years, got that book in April 1985, so it's burned into my memory bank, that and seeing the footage two or three times during the same period.

 

The footage, it could very well be on You Tube, but I would know where it begin to look.

Yeah, I do remember that footage now.....I'm thinking it was on the World At War series with Laurence Olivier.....Bodes

I wondered the same... T-6 Texan doesn't seem to be the most likely plane to be overseas, comparatively speaking...!

 

Say... isn't that Illinois Nazi using a captured CB radio??

French use or British (maybe Canadian built)? A lot of exporting of US aircraft to Europe went on in the late 30's-early 40's.

This is a great thread with a lot of interest and activity.

 

What would make it better would be if everyone included links to where they are drawing these images from on the internet.

 

That is both a courtesy to the original owner, and to provide a link to additional information that might help expand the conversation.

Could it be the German Texan planes are early post-war markings done for a show or movie?

They are not AT-6 "Texans". They are North American NA-64 "Yale" aircraft. The NA-64 P-2 was built for the French Armée de l'Air and Aéronavale in 1939–1940, which ordered 200 and 30 respectively. Of these, 111 had been delivered before France surrendered to the Germany. The NA-64s captured from the French were used by the German Luftwaffe for all types of flight training, from basic flying to advanced fighter tactics.

Thank you for looking that up. One visual clue is the fixed landing gear and "spats" surrounding the wheels.

 

This article gives a nice list of the uses the Germans came up with their captured NA-64's.
