''Papa'' Ringel, with unknown officer , in an unknown ( Greek/Cretan? ) street. Made more interesting as Ringel appears to have bandages on his leg and hand.....and officer still in long wool socks and ski boots !

OK , here's three from a series I bought recently . Looks to me like mountain troops in early white Drillich jackets ,wearing kletterschue , either training or on leave . I believe they're Gebirgsjager because of other photos that came with these three.....

Please keep posting. I'm not a GJ reenactor, more a luftwaffe type, but I love the photos.

Latest instalment ....Gebirgsjager receiving awards in France. First of three , I liked these because of the obviously '' front line '' nature of the pictures ... some dishevelled troops here in convenient surroundings.

A couple of notes regarding the above pictures . The award ceremony , notice the officer has , it seems , a private purchase pair of Bergschue, as they have no flat cleats to accommodate skis , and the NCO is wearing ski shoes . The three gentlemen on the mountain - chap in the two pocket Windbluse appears to be wearing a Bergwacht badge , so maybe a civilian training the other two Gebirgsjager ?
