Yes. 1942 Ostfront, if I remember correctly. Some of the first splinter covers.

Nice photograph of a camo cover; date on the photo is wrong though. Should be late '43 or '44.

Do they not get their dates from the info with the negatives/scratched into the leader/whatever?

If all they are doing is guessing then that calls into question every date in that picture archive... surely they wouldn't bother putting 'Summer' if they weren't even sure what the year is?

I appreciate why you are saying the year is wrong though...
