  1. Sorry i could not fit the question into the above title. How did the Wheatcroft collection go about acquiring the Alkett/Rhinemetall-Borsig - 10.5cm leFH 18/40/2 auf Geschuetzwagen III/IV from the Imperial war museum group? From what i gather the Museum had sent it off to be restored by the Wheatcroft collection, however since that point the German SPG prototype has not been seen at the museum, instead now seemingly being owned by the Wheatcroft collection. Could anyone shed light as to why the museum never bought it back?
  2. Anything wanted from 1936 to 1945. Private collector sp top money offered, in bits of complete, please contact me asap. Thanks
  3. Dear readers, in a stash of WW I photographs I found a picture of a german WW I lorry, obviously an Opel. But does anybody recognize the exact type/model? And furthermore, what about the markings? What does A.M.K.K. mean? Armee Motor Kraftfahr Kolonne? Or anything else? If so, does anyone know, in which theatre of operations A.M.K.K. 816 was deployed? And what does the "Str. 3162" on the licence plate (?) stand for. I have very little knowledge about Imperial German motor equipment, or the organisation of German army transport during the great war, so please be gentle, if these question might be stupid or have been discussed several times before. Oh, by the way it says just "Opel Lastauto" on the back, which can be roughly translated with "Opel lorry". Any help will be highly appreciated. Gradez

  5. Above: German machine-gunners take cover during the Allied invasion. The German Army that met the Allied invasion of Europe on 6 June 1944 was very different to the one that had conquered France four years earlier. Many of Germany's best troops had been sent to fight in the invasion of Russia and the remaining soldiers - including foreign volunteers, Prisoners of War and 16-17 year old boys - were generally unfit for service. There were also shortages of vital equipment. Immediately before the invasion, the German coastal defences were subjected to a massive bombardment from air and sea. Some soldiers were buried under collapsed bunkers and many survivors were too shell-shocked to fight. (Right: German coastal defences under construction shortly before D-Day.) Disagreement about how the French coast should be defended meant that Germany's formidable Panzer Divisions were poorly placed to react to the Allied invasion. Forced to advance by day, many armoured vehicles were destroyed by Allied aircraft before they even reached the coast. "Dearest Lu, It is a hard fight that the army is having to withstand. I was up at the front yesterday and am going again to-day. The enemy's air superiority has a very grave effect on our movements. There's simply no answer to it. It's quite likely to start in other places soon. However, we do what we can." Letter from Field Marshall Erwin Rommel to his wife, 10 June 1944.
