Remember that "69th Division in Leipzig" album? It turned out to be a total misrepresentation - the 69th pamphlet must have belonged to a relative. Anyway, the album was pretty good though, as it came from a veteran from the 16th Infantry Regiment of the 1st Division. Photos of interest include shots of the Falkenau concentation/work camp as well as some great wounded POW shots. A small handful of negatives was also included. A little bit expensive, but I guess it turned out alright.
I'm already "doing my thing" and have identified at least one member of the unit. He passed away a few years ago, but I'm hoping it may help me narrow down my search. At least one of these guys has to still be around, right?
These pictures seem to come from the estate of W.E. McKnight. I won a couple of auctions, but sadly not the ones I acctually wanted. Some of the "Ardennes" photos were acctually taken in the Harz Mountains, showing rare german tanks ("St.Andreasberg Jagdtiger" and one of the few "All Steelwheel Panthers".
These are "Joe and Bill" in front of the Hotel "Weisser Schwan" in Graslitz, now Kraslice.
