  1. It is Greek. I think I managed to read the first word, the next one is not well seen. It's Greek letters, which can be translated to E.S. Ypiresia. The E.S. means Elinikos Stratos /Greek Army/ and Ypiresia - Service
  2. A busy Bulgarian repair shop. The whole photo, plus some interesting parts magnified: /well, the main photo appeared at the bottom/
  3. Interesting video, indeed! I hope this time it will work:
  4. Probably the wife insists to be sold and the husband cooperates, but makes sure it won;t be bought
  5. Yes, definitely Bulgaria As for the Purrey, i think the difference is in the System word - it is not a Purrey, but a vehicle made in the Purrey system, the Purrey configuration of the body.
  6. the radiator resembles NAG. An extraordinary vehicle!
  7. Hi Al, unfortunately there are no such pictures. The closest to a full vehicle is the chassis picture, which I have shown, the rest are just pictures of parts. In fact this seems the way they made the parts lists - I have parts lists for late 1930s Mercedes cars /170 and 230/ and there is also no car shown, again the most complete scheme is just a running chassis.
  8. It came out of the blue, found at a flea market!
  9. And yes, it actually shows a "normal"chassis and the parts are for it, too, but there is a chapter attached in the end, showing in a few pages the Chain Drive parts. Seems the truck was delivered in both configurations.
  10. A few years ago I was lucky to find something really rare - a Benz Gaggenau truck parts list. I think it is exactly from the period of the photos above. Not sure if it is exactly the same model, but at least, very close. It is for a 3-ton Benz Gaggenau, with chain drive. The engine from the photos above and in the books looks pretty much the same. The book has seen better days, but I'm in love with it anyway
  11. And the last one for now - This one is pretty clear about the model - Benz Gaggenau. And also dated July 1917, Levunovo. So, the previous 2 may be Levunovo as well, as all the 3 photos reside on one single page of an old album.
  12. The same place /either Levunovo, or Kriva livada/ a couple of weeks earlier - dated February 1917
  13. This one rocks! "In the workshop, 10 March 1917". That must be either Levunovo, or Kriva livada. Not sure about the truck type.
  14. This one is mine as well, but can't find the original right now, so showing this not so big scan - Bulgarian staff removing parts from a shot down aircraft
  15. A captured British aircraft delivered at the Levunovo rail station /at Levunovo were stationed both the HQ of the Bulgarian 2nd Army and the airfield of the 1st Airplane detachment, mostly fighter aircraft/.
