    Memorable photos

    Saw this picture somewhere else and....after being inspired by the ww1 documentary..... thought it would be interesting to start a memorable picture thread here.

    Doesn't have to be a meme, just an interesting or unusual war picture

    Mods can move it to where they feel it's more appropriate

    My father as a 5'5"' airborne trooper radio operator (that's the big pack in his front below his reserve) ready for another jump. They had to help him into the C-47 and basically threw him out over the DZ.
    He was a tough hard drinking little Irishman, fun to hang out with and I miss him. He passed away December 27 2011.

    In this picture you can clearly see his main chute,canteen and his M1
    carbine leg bag...Like I said he was a tough little guy who never talked
    about the horrific things he saw until he was very old,even then he
    only said the Nazi's had to be stopped and left it at that...
    He was only 17 years old in this picture.

    West German Home Guard. I noticed something cool and odd about the picture, does anyone else notice it?

    Doubt it was a MAS. Then again, who knows? They grabbed anything they could find at that point once the national army fell apart after the goose steppers rolled in. That was pops. He was a Yugoslavian Royalist (Chetnik). Hard to believe, but I never asked him what that was.
